It’s Election Day – Get Out And Vote
Can you feel it in the air? The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and people with entirely opposite viewpoints about how the government should be run are about to spend a long day trying to convince you that they’re right, and the other guys are just sheep who have drunk the kool-aid! Happy Election Day!
Early voting ended last Friday, and today is the last day you can speak up and have your voice heard about who will be sitting in the White House for the next four years – unless, of course, the Mayans were right.
You’ll also get to cast your vote about Props. 1, 2, and 3. Perhaps you’ve heard a little something about those!
And you’ll even get to get one of those super cool stickers that say, “I Voted!” I mean, what more could you ask for?
If you waited until today to go vote, El Paso County elections administrator Javier Chacon said you should expect lines at your polling place, especially toward the end of the day. You also have to vote at your precinct. But he went on to say that as long as you arrive before the polls close, you can vote.
Polls open this morning at 7 a.m. and close at 7 o’clock tonight, and here is a complete list of where to vote.
And here is the explanation of the Electoral College, in cartoon form!
