oh, and if can vote tomorrow, DO SO!

BB has prepared a nice voter's guide for the City of Pittsburgh and Highland Park, our neighborhood.

I wrote this up for our church's weekly email. They reprinted portions of it in Sunday's bulliten.

Tuesday, May 15 is Primary Election Day in Allegheny County. If you are registered as a Democrat or a Republican, you can vote for people in your party.

If you don't care about who will be running in November for Judicial, City Council and School Board, don't show up on Tuesday...but you seem like the sort of person that DOES care, so here are some resources from the OD's own public librarian, SW, who will be working the polls on Tuesday...(if the Fulton School is your polling place, stop by and say hey!)

Click on some links, talk to your neighbors that have lawn signs up, and go vote on Tuesday. The polls open at 7 AM and close at 8 PM.

I'm not registered--but I want to vote in November (about.com)

I haven't missed voting once since I turned 18.

I hate that PA doesn't let you vote in the primaries if you are an independent. UGGH. I was going to re-register (and I am still planning to so I can vote in the presidential primary)but I got confused on the cut -off date & didn't do it in time.
