I am counseling you right now to get an absentee ballot if there is even the slightest chance you will be unable to make it. If you or your husband/partner travel please , one vote per household will not cut it this year, get that absentee ballot. The little one prone to ear infections ? Absentee. Nothing cool to wear to the polls? Absentee.
We vote as a Community on Tuesday March 11th which is NEXT WEEK. Sorry for the caps, but a local organizer just found 15 people that had no clue. I totally understand the young family voter. I do, but no excuses this year , please.
A vote for our future on GBKC should also include a vote for the future of the Exeter River, the Squamscott River and The Great Bay, our watershed. Let’s have some fun , blow the numbers sky high, show up and demonstrate the power of the entire Community. That huge turnout will go along way to re-ordering the stagnant landscape of our local, small p, politics.
