Election Day is Almost Here! Here's a Little Help, Now Go Vote!
Ok, you've missed early voting, Tuesday's coming and you know who you want to cast your ballot for President, but you're not sure about those other races?
I know it's intimidating. As a matter of fact, I'm sure that's one reason many people don't vote. Most people aren't political junkies so they haven't been paying attention to what seems to be a million politicians running for office.
Here's a little help. This sample ballot will let you know every congressional and state race you will be voting for if you live in Dallas County (sorry, if you live elsewhere, I can't be of much help to you!)
You still have to do a little homework, but here's the link to the League of Women Voter's Guide. You will find virtually everything you need here to find out where to vote and the politicians stances on relevant issues. Trust me, it's excellent.
Spend some time reading about the candidates. Filter through the noise. Think about the kind of country, state and county you want and which office best helps achieve that desired end.
There's also a bond initiative on the ballot. Here's some information on that.
You've got all the tools you need. Now GO VOTE!
By the way, this is a post for today AND tomorrow. This election is just that important!
