About Tuesdays’ Voting


     I’ve already voted, and you probably have too!

                                    

     But just in case you are one of those that likes to vote – ON voting day,  I’d like to try and persuade you to vote against  just one item, just one ………..  and I’ll get to that in just a second.

                                                   

     First,  I’d like to share with you something very interesting. I’d like to show just how good we have it in Broward/Fort Lauderdale, when it comes to voting, compared to some other places.

     Now many of you know that Cindy and I have a cabin business in Georgia (Bear Creek Lodge and Cabins), that we open in the summer and fall. Well I’m up here this week closing the cabins for the winter, and decided to stop in the voting precinct for  Robertstown, just a few miles north of our cabins in Helen, Georgia.

         Here is the official voting precinct

                

     No, I’m not making this up!

     The door was propped open, and the guy at the boiled peanuts and pork rinds shop next door said they left the door open to “air it out”, and “spruce it up” – get it ready for the big voting day!

                                    
                                        ……..  a Georgia State delicacy!

     So, I popped my head in to check out the voting booths! ………….

                    

                   No, I’m still not kidding.  …….    I guess they hadn’t finish sprucing!

         ……………………………………………………………….
      And lastly, that item that I said I’d like to persuade you to vote against if you’re voting on Tuesday, is the Municipal Elections Amendment on your ballot.

      It will be the last item on your ballot. The amendment asks you to approve changes to how we elect our officials. There are some good parts in the amendment, but the problem is, it negates the term limit  law we finally got passed in Fort Lauderdale about a decade ago.

              So Just Vote NO! …..  (and while you’re at it, thank Dr. Snipes for the nice voting booths!)
