Be informed; the decisions are up to you
What's your voting plan for tomorrow? Do you know where you vote? Will you vote before or after work? Do you have plans for child care or are you taking your children with you? Will you have a copy of MEA's recommended candidates with you? Are you allowing yourself enough time to read and mark the entire ballot?
We're all busy, but having a plan to vote means you'll be more likely to actually go to the polls and cast your ballot. Be an informed voter. Take one of the voter guides described below along with you to make sure you know which candidates and which ballot proposals support working families. Using a guide will also save you time.
You can go online to MEA.YourVoterGuide.com to find your polling location and the MEA recommended candidates in your area for both federal and state races. For recommendations on local races, you can check online in the Members Only area of MEA.org or contact your local UniServ office. (Note: MEA local offices are closed tomorrow for Election Day – if you need help with voting questions on Election Day, MEA headquarters will be open at 800-292-1934).
The Michigan League of Responsible Voters is dedicated to educating voters with the most updated election information. On their website, www.leagueofresponsiblevoters.org, you can download a practical guide to the ballot proposals that provides background information on each proposal, explains what each proposal does, lists those groups both supporting and opposing the proposal, and the League's recommendations.
Tomorrow is an important day. Who gets elected matters and the decisions are all up to you. Vote tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 6.
