Polls are open today until 7:00 p.m. for the Primary Election. Don’t let anything keep you from your civic duty. VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
Why bother to vote? Because someone hired by someone appointed by someone elected affects your life and your family around the clock. Politics affects salaries, class sizes, the availability of textbooks and equipment, school safety and nutrition, the freedom to teach, the attitude of the public toward our public schools and school personnel, and the quality of the learning environment. Politics is woven inseparably and intrinsically into every aspect of public education.
At the local level, we have school board and Superintendent races that could be determined today. So make every effort to get yourself, your family, and friends to the polls and vote for those candidates who will best support public education.
