ballot (with update)

I finally made myself sit down to fill out my early ballot.  Ideally, I would’ve filled it out last week and mailed it.  Now I must take it to my polling station anyway in order to turn it in.

I was hoping that Arizona wouldn’t be a swing state, so I could vote third party but alas, I voted for one of the main two.

I also found this site helpful. It lists easy to understand information about the propositions.  Here’s a link to Arizona’s specific page.   I was surprised after reading many of the descriptions–the little blurb on the ballot really isn’t enough to go on.

If you are into non-violence and hippie information–this site may also be biased and helpful for advice on how to vote. (scroll down)

I encourage you to fill out your sample ballot that you should’ve received in the mail last week, so you can take it with you to the polling station on Tuesday.

I have to say that the whole process isn’t really easy, but I please vote on things that you understand.  You can always leave sections blank if you want.

**update**

A friend of mine who knows things about judicary areas of our Arizonan government recomended to me to vote no on retaining judges Buttrick, Dunevant, and Ryan.

tomorrow

work emails, saddle soap (apparently bad for leather, need to find suitable replacement), wash scooter, ULTA, lunch with Michelle (cancelled), call Joy S. (emailed), Doc Martens?, bruise wheel?, finish Deana’s painting, email Western Builders with invoice, fill out early ballot, chiropractic appointment (rescheduled), finish exterior paint repair, talk to Ida about someone else heading up the community garden…I think that’s it. Maybe.

payday loan reform

The so-called Payday Loan “Reform†Act would allow the payday lenders to bleed hard-working Arizonans with 400% interest rates. Forever.The payday lending industry doesn’t want you to know it, but when it comes to protecting your pocketbook at the ballot box this November, “no†will mean “yes.â€

A “NO†vote on the payday industry’s Prop 200 will mean “yes†to capping payday loans at 36% interest once and for all.
