Time to vote again

There is still a month to go before the November 4 election, but today is the day that early voting starts in San Francisco and many other locations. The state is sending out vote-by-mail ballots starting today. If you have any doubts about whether you are registered to vote–if you have moved since the last time you voted, for example–now is the time to check with the Department of Elections. And if you haven’t started to look at the long array of ballot measures we will be facing, now is the time to start. There are 22 city ballot measures and 12 from the state. They are complicated and can be confusing. Start planning now. Go to one of the forums in your neighborhood. Visit www.sfvotes.org to see watch videos of the local candidate interviews and pro/con discussions of local ballot measures. Get together with friends to talk about the election. You don’t want to walk into your polling place on November 4 without a clue as to how you are going to vote. The time is now to start your election clock going!
