    Vote 2016!

    I occasionally hear from people that there is no real reason to vote this year.  I beg to differ.  However you may feel about the Presidential Election, there are a lot of other contested elections at the state and local level that deserve your attention and consideration.

    Register to Vote (by Mail)

    With the election just a month away, it is important that you register to vote as soon as possible if you haven’t already.  Online registration is quick and easy.  And I highly recommend that everyone add their registration to the “permanent absentee list.” Doing so will request your county clerk to send you a mail-in ballot for all future elections.

    Elections in Our Area

    The exact elections vary from precinct to precinct.  The State Election Office web-site will allow you to enter your address and see exactly which elections will be on your ballot and provide you with tools to get informed.  Here is a summary of some of the contested elections that will be on the ballot in our area.  As you can see, this is a big election year and I hope you will take the time to get informed and vote.
