The Call, The Cost, The Election

I wonder how much the automated call cost the Democratic Party today? Of course, last week I wondered where the return call from Joe was - well, it landed today. It was over a week late and on the wrong subject - a reminder to vote early.

So everyone, if you so choose - please vote early - vote for one of the 7 candidates of your choice and pray a lot.

More information on Early Voting

And, from Rogers Park Voter:

"Grace Period Voting" from now through Tuesday, October 21 lets you do both if you are (a) United States citizen, (b) 18 years of age or older by November 4, 2008, and (c) have been a resident of your precinct 30 days prior to the Nov. 4 election. You need to show two valid pieces of identification, with at least one showing your current address. Grace Period Registration and Voting is ONLY at the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, 69 W. Washington St., Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This Saturday, October 18 from 10:00 am to noon at the Rogers Park Branch Library, 6907 North Clark St., our non-partisan Rogers Park VOTER organization will offer poll watcher training. Meet neighbors, enjoy refreshments, and learn everything you always wanted to know about poll watching but were afraid to ask!

We'll train any Illinois registered voter and certify you to monitor a 49th Ward polling place on Election Day. You can volunteer for a few hours or all day. Then we'll meet to share experiences and watch the election results together.

Contact: Rogers Park Voter for Poll Watching training.

The rules still apply to deceased voters, vacant building residents, suburbanites, and parking lots. If Joe really wants a clean election, he'll bar ACORN from Ward 49.
