It's GOTV time!
Let's "Get Out The Vote!" for November 8th!
Election day is now just hours away instead of months or weeks. If you have already voted for me via absentee ballot, thank you so much!
If you have an absentee ballot and haven't turned it in yet, please do so as soon as possible by putting it in the drop box outside of the city building. There is also a drop box inside the city building, in the lobby where the clerk's service counters are located, if you prefer to use that. The deadline for turning in your ballot is 8 pm on Election day, but don't wait that late! It really helps the folks processing ballots if they are turned in well before the deadline.
If you are voting on election day, don't forget to go to the polls between 7am and 8pm! There is still time to "vote early" if you aren't sure you'll have time on Tuesday. The city clerk's office is open from 8 am to 4 pm on Monday and you can request an absentee ballot in person and fill it out, returning it in the lobby drop box.
In addition to reminding you to vote, I'd also like to invite you to attend a GOTV event for Congressman Dan Kildee. Regardless of where you live in the city of Midland, Dan Kildee could be your next congressman! Join him and his other Midland supporters on Monday, Nov 7th, at 1 pm in Midland. It will be short and sweet, with the congressman speaking briefly and (more than likely) taking photos with supporters. You can RSVP here to get the location and let the campaign know that you are coming: https://www.mobilize.us/dankildee/event/540578/
Please feel free to invite any friends who you think might like to attend. (If you really want to go, but don't want to sign up through Mobilize, send me an email, along with the secret handshake 😉 , and I'll send you the location. )
One final thing - the Midland Democratic Party is sponsoring a election night watch party from 7:30 pm until midnight at the Steelworker's Hall, 3510 James Savage Rd. For this election, absentee ballot processing can begin as soon as the polls open, so hopefully that means the local election results will be available earlier than in 2020.
Thanks so much for your support this election. I hope that I will have the opportunity to represent you on the Midland County Board of Commissioners. However, even if the results aren't what we hope for in my race, I'm confident that we will see wins for Democrats in other races, And I will continue to work for progress in Midland, and beyond.
