I’ve been so busy dealing with PreTeen angst and my own existential crises, that I didn’t realize the election is less than two weeks away! November 5 is fast approaching. I am pleased that The Teen will be able to vote in her first election!
In Upper Darby there are candidates for School Board, Township Council, County Council, and Judges. Please do your homework before you vote. REMEMBER, VOTE THE PERSON NOT THE PARTY.
It’s not required, but this year you will be asked for your identification.
I know some people think that the identification requirement is another way of disenfranchisement. As one who has had to visit the lovely folks (tongue firmly planted in cheek) at the DMV, I know it’s a hassle to get an ID. I think back to when we rescued Fat Mittens (Rest in Peace) and Midnight. I had to show ID to get a damn cat. Showing identification when voting for the person to represent our needs and interest should be a no brainer.
Pennsylvania has been proactive about getting the word out. The VotesPA site has a list of all the places where identification can be obtained as well as this cute commercial. Check it here.
