Register to Vote and Meet the Candidates

This is an exciting year for those of us that follow local politics. Not only is Arnold Schwarzenegger running for reelection, but San Jose gets to elect a new mayor. Hopefully you are already registered to vote. If not, do it now! You can request the form to register from the CA Secretary of State. Right now is the perfect time to do it. There are some really important issues on the ballot and it is crucial that you register study and then show up and vote!

I am also going to be helping at a candidate forum for Cindy Chavez and Chuck Reed this Friday. This is a great opportunity to meet the candidates, hear them speak and ask them questions. The candidates for the 3rd City Council District, Manny Diaz and Sam Liccardo will also be there. It is at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, September 22 at the San Jose High Academy Cafeteria,
24th and Julian Streets (park across Julian from the school or on Bulldog Blvd). I will be there and will post here about how it went, but if you are available, come and see it in person!

Cynthia McCune has a great post on voting with links to helpful websites and more. There are a lot of important and complicated issues that are going to be on the ballot. It is about time to start taking a serious look at them and decide how you are going to vote.
