I was speaking to one of my neighbors the other day about the upcoming elections and she said she had not yet received her sample ballot. I encouraged her to check her voter registration status.
Tell your neighbors too! Voting in state and local elections is just as important as voting in presidential elections. There are six propositions on the California ballot on May 19, and one local measure, measure G, on the ballot for June 2.
It is also possible to register as a permanent vote-by-mail voter, so that an actual ballot (not just a sample) is mailed to you before election day. This gives you the freedom to vote at your kitchen table, and return the ballot by mail or in person on election day.
