Election Day 2009

Posted by at 9:00 am in News | Permalink

Electionday Today is Election Day. If your school was like mine was growing up, you know this because you have the day off. But there was probably a sad lack of hullabaloo surrounding this election. Last year at this time, the election was all anyone could talk about, because it was a presidential election. The other three years, elections happen quietly every year on the first Tuesday after a Monday in November.

Wait, a Tuesday after a Monday? That’s every Tuesday! The key is the Monday. The Monday has to be in November. So, if November 1st is a Tuesday, it’s not Election Day, because the Monday was in October. Election Day is always between November 2nd and November 8th.

But back to the point . . . Just because we’re not voting for President this year, doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of important government officials up for election. None of them are country-wide, and most of them aren’t even state-wide. Most of them are for the people who just run your town, and maybe the towns around it, so it would be impossible for me to name the candidates that matter to you. But your local newspapers and news stations should have all that juicy info.

    I love politics. When I was younger my grandparents got me into it! And now i love it! And I agree. Presidents are great. But they don’t fully contribute to your state. So when (and if) your parents go to vote for President, encourage them to vote for Government and House of Representatives. (And all those kind of people) And get your friends involved in the process of voting. Or about politics itself. Because we are the KIDS OF THE FUTURE!
    Thx!
