Michiganders, Kansans, Missourians, and Georgians, today is your primary election! I don’t know about you, but we’ve got lots of fun stuff to vote on down here in Wayne County (Michigan) (ok, not really, on the Republican side, there’s 2 contested races, but on the Democrats’ side it seems like there’s more candidates than voters; also, there’s a vote on a 0.1 mill for the Detroit Zoo)!
So, even if you have 0 contested races, get out, do your civic duty, and vote. If you don’t vote, you have no right to complain about who gets elected (you could always write somebody in – assuming they’ve filed the paperwork).
I’ll post the results of the Detroit Zoo millage when they come out (sorry to all you non-Michiganders – I guess you can ignore all of this other than the reminder to get out and vote). I’ll also post the results of my hotly contested race for delegate to the district convention. I’m running against one other person, and there’s 8 spots open. Will I get the one vote I need? Find out next time on Days of Our Legislature (this is what happens when you write blog posts at 3:00 A.M.).
And, one more time: GET OUT AND VOTE!
