Have you noticed the proliferation of election signs already up along the county’s roads? Hard to miss really. It’s difficult to imagine a more important election cycle than the one we face over the next year and a half. We all have to think short term (local and state) as well as long term (national) to ensure we put people in place who we can count on to counteract and countermand the truly terrible decisions that have been made over the past thirty months.
Why would you want to vote early or absentee? There are many reasons why you might want to vote early or to use an absentee ballot. Will you be out of town on business or vacation? Are you a first-responder, active military or do you have other work obligations that might keep from the polls? These are just some of the reasons you might not be able to make it the polls on Election Day, so plan to vote early or to get an absentee ballot in advance. Also, if you have friends or family who might need to vote early or use an absentee ballot, pass this article on to them and encourage them to use one of these options. Every vote is critical.
