compulsive patriotic voters will head to the polls today to vote in special elections for some legislative offices that have had vacancies, municipal elections and referenda. After walking the dogs, I will head across the street to the local high school to cast my vote in the E-SPLOST-IV election in DeKalb County.
In some areas, voters who wish to vote in both municipal elections and elections held by county election officials will have to vote in two separate elections in two separate voting places. In Lilburn, for example, you will have to vote at City Hall on Main Street and also head to your normal voting place to vote on the E-SPLOST. This last tip is courtesy of State Representative B.J. Pak.
And here’s a pro-tip for amateurs: don’t release anything political the day before the election that does not relate directly to that election unless you want it to get buried in elections news. Like the announcement that Jackson County Chairman Hunter Bicknell will run for Congress as a Republican in the 9th CD, or the release of the feasibility study for a proprosed City of Brookhaven. Finally, if you know that a blogger on a popular political website is writing about your issue, maybe you want to send him a heads-up on your feasibility study, or even a copy. I’m looking at you, C4ND.
Consider this an open thread for voting related topics throughout the day.
