Time to think about voting

Early voting in the May 19 election has started, so if you expect to be out of town on Election Day, be sure to get an absentee ballot or go to your local election office to vote. The ballot measures coming before the public on May 19 are important, but they are complex, so the turnout is expected to be light. If you care at all about what’s happening to the California budget, get out and vote! This year is setting a record for the use of electronic media in making voting easier and more efficient. Even tweets will be used, according to Secretary of State Debra Bowen, for getting important information out to polling places. As usual California is leading the way in using electronic means to make voting easier. Now all we have to do is get out the voters. If you don’t vote, you don’t have the right to complain about the results. Make your voice heard on May 19.
