Important Dates for Voters

Please keep the following dates in mind. Your vote is important.

April 17, 2006 -- The last day to register to vote in this year's primary.

May 16, 2006 -- The primary election, from 6 AM to 6 PM.

October 9, 2006 -- The last day to register for the general election.

November 7, 2006 -- The general election, from 6 AM to 6 PM.

If you are not registered, April 17 is coming up fast. Register! It is a simple process. Fill out a voter registration card today. The Fayette County Clerk's office, local political parties, Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, The Fayette County Democratic Women's Group, and both UK and Transylvania Universities are passing out voter registration cards. If you don't know where or how to contact any of these folks, send me an email from this site and I will help you get registered.

It is not just a right, voting is the responsibility of every citizen.

I often use this blog to talk about what a mess our elected officials have made. They didn’t do this alone. It is our job to hold them accountable. We must vote them out of office, give new people a chance, and keep replacing the ones who do not do the job they have taken on until we have a government that works for us. We must also look for people who take the responsibility of good government seriously, recruit them as political candidates and support them in the effort to clean up the local, state, and federal government. We have been failing, and have the government we deserve. It is no better or worse than the citizens empowering it.
