Casting Your Votes, Down the Ballot
Posted by whforums on October 17, 2008
A couple of quick links this morning as we shift our attention to our next trip to the “privacy screens” — the November 4th election.
First, check out whctv’s programming schedule. Last night, they started showing pre-filmed debates for the 18th, 19th and 20th House districts as well as the 5th Senate district. These debates will keep running through the 4th of November.
If you’re into meeting the candidates more than you’re into watching them on local access, there’s a Candidate Forum at Blue Back Square’s Outdoor Gathering Space on Sunday from 2-4. This is a great opportunity to engage your local democracy by expressing your concerns to those who represent you and your family. It’ll also give you a chance to educate yourself about those names on the ballot that might otherwise make you feel under-informed. Check out a flier for the event in .pdf form (yeah, it’s going to start a download in some browsers) here.
And if you’re not registered to vote, register already. If you’re eligible and unregistered, what’s wrong with you?
