From the television ads it would seem the only contest that counts is the Presidential race. There are, however a number of races for Congress, County and School Board offices that are extremely important. As well as the Amendments and School Board property Tax Referendum.
One of the really nice things about the internet is you can use your favorite browser, Google, Bing, Chrome, Yahoo Search and find out just about all you want to know about the state and local candidates. If you're voting a mail in ballot that makes figuring out who to vote for very easy.
If you’re going to the polls to vote you need to equip yourself with necessary information to vote. Waiting until you get to the polls and using your smart phone to search for candidates and issues, may just be a little time consuming in the voting booth.
Why not do it ahead of time and have your ballot choices loaded into the smart phone so voting is quick and easy? Simplest way, send yourself an email or text message with the voting information and you are ready to go.
Most of us have already decided who we are going to vote for in the Presidential race, but my guess is you don’t know a whole lot about the rest of the ballot.
Cutting that recommendation column out of the newspaper may not be in your best interest.
I am not going tell you how to vote, but if you would like to see my ballot along with some thoughts you can view it at Bay Post Internet.
It is important that you vote. At the top of the Ballot, the Presidential race looks to be very close. Your vote could well make the difference.
Down the ballot, many people may skip the races and Amendments they don’t understand. These votes are extremely important and your vote is critical.
You can get some information on amendments and Judges ay my Post It's Time To Vote - Judges and amendments.
Sitting this one out and not voting as some kind of “protest” just doesn’t work. It doesn’t work for you, your children or your parents.
Early voting is underway. Get informed, mail in your ballot or get to your polling place. You can check out your registration status, find you Poling Place at the Supervisor of Elections web site.
Your vote will make us all stronger as a country, state, county, city and neighborhood.
