Not talking politics, but boy that was fun!

Posted on October 14, 2013 at 2:05 PM
During the Presidential election I worked at the Board of Elections (BOE) for early voting and at the Library on McArthur Road on Election Day.  That was an exciting time for a lot of people. Did I say a lot? I mean A LOT  of people, and it was exciting for me as well.  The hours for Election Day were very long, but with the amount of voters that came out, time went by quickly. 

I’ve been asked to serve as a judge for our local election this year for Mayor and other city offices.  I, of course, said yes and have already worked the primary.  The primary is where you have more than two candidates running against for the same position, i.e., Mayor.   The other candidates may have been for city council in certain districts’. 

The district I worked in was CC 18 short for Cross Creek 18.  We voted at Max Abbott Middle School.  There are about 1582 residents in that district if my memory serves me right.  We had only Mayoral candidates on the ballot at the primary for the district.  We had about 23% of registered voters come out and vote at the primary.  Not a bad number at all, according to the BOE.  I thought it should have been more, but then again, I am not talking politics, I just work here. :)

I enjoy working and assisting voters do their civic duty.  I really like to meet people and I get a chance to very briefly talk to some I know and some I don’t.  So, if you are in district CC18, when you come to vote on November 5, 2013, be sure to bring breakfast, lunch or dinner, for me (just kidding!), but do take the time and say hello. The days are long and we like having you being part of the excitement.

Not sure if you are going to vote or not?  You got to be kidding me right?  Get out there and vote!  If you don’t know who to choose, talk to them (there are forums or events) look them up on the net and take a look at their platform.  Talk to your neighbors, family and friends.  The most important thing you can do is to vote. 

If you don’t vote, you can’t mope!
 
Good luck and God Bless,
Steve
