Pay Attention To The Men Behind The Curtain… #VOTE!

The mid-term elections are underway. Pennsylvania’s primary is Tuesday the 20th of May. Contrary to what some may have you believe, mid-term elections are just as important as, if not more than, the presidential elections.

In September of 2012 I asked if it was possible that the GOP threw the Presidential election to focus on local races instead. Why else would they give us Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney? Are they that out of touch?

Most of the damage is done during midterm elections. I believe wholeheartedly that it’s because people think the President has sweeping power to do as he wishes. I don’t think people get how important these midterms are.

Take a look at what’s going on around the States and tell me if you feel the same.

So, to make it easier, here are a few valuable resources that I always turn to in any political cycle,

The National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL)

The League of Women Voters

and here in Pennsylvania…

The Committee of Seventy
Pay attention folks. There’s a lot to lose in local elections.

Now go out and VOTE!

  1. Thanks ADignorantium! Yes, we are paying attention and we agree with you about how important this and every election is. We have a lot of information on our site http://www.seventy.org for folks who want to know who’s running, where their polling place is, what the ballots really mean – in plain language, etc…..

    • Thank you for your comment, and the years of help that Committee of Seventy has provided.
      My biggest pet peeve, after Voter ID, is that ballot questions are written in double speak. I’ve learned that it helps to review the questions BEFORE going to my polling place. Committee of Seventy has been invaluable to me on that front.
      To be honest, I’m kinda star struck that someone from Committee of 70 took the time to look over my post. 🙂
