Next Election: 4 weeks from today.
I need a favor. This will only take you a minute (tops), but it’s very important that you do it right now.
I will step you through it.
1. Get a pen or pencil and something to write on—preferably a journal or appointment calendar.
2. Go to April 5, 2011, or write April 5, 2011, if not using a calendar or dated journal.
3. Under April 5, write the following:
a. Election Day
b. My polling place is: [name it]
c. I plan to vote [time of day]
d. I will be coming from [place] and will take [major road/highway]
e. Immediately before voting, I will be [what you’ll be doing—work, fixing breakfast, taking kids to school, etc.]
f. Come hell or high water, though, I will vote on April 5
There. You’re done. You’ve developed a personal voting plan to ensure you don’t forget to vote on April 5.
If you live in St. Louis County, Chip Wood is the conservative Republican running for the newly created office of Assessor. I like Chip Wood because he’s a no-nonsense, grassroots conservative like me. He will make sure property taxes in the county are fair.
If you live in the city, Jesse Irwin is running a fabulous campaign for 10th Ward Alderman. I like Jesse because he can represent all of the people of 10th Ward to help stop the city’s population hemorrhage.
Oh, and one more little favor. Get 5 of your friends to make their voting plans today because every election counts toward restoring the American republic.
