Voting

There are some good four letter words that most of us probably like--SALE, LOVE, FREE, HOPE & etc.  Then there are those that are so harsh they can't even be spelled in the local newspaper without deleting some of the letters.  It would seem another four letter word is joining this last group.  This four letter word has struck fear in over 86% of the population to the extent they stayed clearly away from where you could act on this four letter word--VOTE.  So those 13% plus that took the time to V__E in the primary elections held earlier have dictated to those that did not who will make the decisions on how much to lighten your pocket, how much freedom you will have and various other things that impact your life.
  There is a rumor going around this V__E thing will actually be done again on May 27, 2014.  It is called a runoff, but you really won't have to run to V__E.  Below are some things you may find helpful as you prepare to V__E in the runoff elections.
_________________________________________________________________________________
What is the runoff about? 
Many of the races in the Democrat and Republican primaries did not produce a clear winner.  Now, a winner for the top two candidates need to be picked.

Important dates---
APRIL 28 is the last date for unregistered voters to register for the primary runoff elections.
May 19 thru 23 set aside for early voting
May 27 is the actual election day
__________________________________________________________________________________
Runoff elections are being held for both Democrat and Republican candidates.  If you voted in the primary for Democrats, you must vote in the runoff for Democrats. If you voted in the Republican primary, you must vote in the Republican primary.
IF YOU DID NOT VOTE IN EITHER PRIMARY HELD EARLIER, YOU MAY NOW VOTE IN EITHER RUNOFF PRIMARY.

__________________________________________________________________________________
Plan now to participate in the primary runoff elections.  Change V__E back to VOTE.

Following e-mails will list the candidates in both parties involved in the runoff elections being held on May 27th.
