Here is a big fact: In our voting district a few hundred voters have the ability to upset business as usual.
If you plan on voting on February 2, 2010 for the primary ballot we suggest you check out http://www.evoter.com for information on where your polling place is located. There is a reason they made the primary happen in the dead of winter. They really don’t want you to vote. It helps the incumbents.
We have made endorsements for the three parties running in the coming primary election: The Democrats, Republicans and The Greens.
Feel free to bring this newsletter with you to the polls.
However, you shouldn’t just rely on our opinion. We suggest you conduct your own research.
