Primaries and Early Voting Are Important!

MAR 30, 2014 – DC is currently holding its primary elections, and I headed out yesterday and "early voted". We in DC are very progressive and do not put up any voter suppression hurdles. In fact, DC is very accommodating to its citizens when it comes to early voting, same-day voter registration, and making sure DC citizens who may not have an ID for some reason or another, can use an alternative form of ID like a utility bill or something. We have accessibility vans picking up our disabled citizens and whisking them to the polls. In other words, in DC we make it easier to vote, NOT harder. My experience was great. No lines, and I was in and out in 5 minutes. I was free to do my other errands and carry on not worrying about missinga primary or special election which I do sometimes if it is "only on one day". That is why early voting is important, it more accurately represents more of the electorate, because more people vote.

Another reason why this is significant is this is a local election. Sometimes people get caught up only in the Presidential elections, and ignore the midterms, primaries and local elections.That is a mistake. Who sits on your city council determines if you can get your medical marijuana or not. Your state senators and representatives determine whether your gay friend can marry his lover. JTMP urges our supporters to not only register and vote, but vote in each and every election. Vote in the general elections, the primaries, the special elections, get educated on ballot initiatives and other things on the ballot. Most states send out a "voter's guide" that explains how, where and when to vote; and even contains sample ballots so you can be prepared and be informed when you arrive at the polls. JTMP urges our supporters to pay attention to elections and make sure you have easy and early voting in your state.
