The primary election to elect a new Council Member to represent Council District 4 is tomorrow, Tuesday March 3rd, and we encourage all residents to get out and vote. The ballot of 14 qualified candidates vying in the race will be narrowed down to just two contenders for the May 2015 election.
Given the expected low voter turnout (only one in five voters are expected to go to the polls) it is more important than ever to vote in this race that truly does impact us at the most basic level: it will determine who will speak for our interests in city politics and policies, about our roads, crime, safety, zoning and development, in addition to the bigger issues of making the City more fiscally sound.
Also on the ballot is a proposed amendment to the City Charter moving local elections to the regular national cycle. Read more about that here.
If you have a mail-in ballot and have not mailed it yet, you may hand-deliver it to your polling place tomorrow. Do not mail it in at this late a date. Confirming your polling place only takes a moment: click here.
