Seniors Need to Vote on November 4, 2014
When turnout is huge, we win. When turnout is low, we lose.
Midterm elections are as important as other elections. Everything from the governor’s office to school board seats is fought over. History shows us that in some cases, one vote can determined the outcome of a race. Do not let this happen.
Be sure that you, your family, friends and neighbors are informed and vote absentee ballots or get to the polls on November 4th.
