It may seem strange to talk about getting out the vote, when it is only August 6tth, but everyone's vote is so terribly important and this is not a presidential election year, which means the turnout is usually lower. We need to turn that around.
There are a few very important races here in the Bay Area. My friend Evan Low is seeking a State Assembly seat from Campbell and here in San Francisco, my friend David Chiu is seeking the seat that represents half of this city. Dan Choi, whom I have written about many times in this blog, is entering his first election, trying for a seat on the San Francisco City College Board of Trustees. There are numerous other contests here and there are races wherever you live that need your attention.
Not registered to vote? No problem. There still is plenty of time. Register now though while you are thinking about it. Get involved in someone's campaign too while you're at it. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing you were part of an important change!
