Well, tomorrow is election day. How many of you knew that? I almost forgot myself and I actually care. Our media, and I’m talking TV, newspapers, radio (and not just news) does a very, very poor job of promiting the fact that we can vote tomorrow.
Now, as you know as a primary with district seats, where you live and your party will determine who your choices are. I dare you to find a good city website that will give you a listing of the candidates, or a sample ballot for your actual polling place, or better yet a city website that will tell you where your polling place is!
I’ve looked. Comittee of Seventy was my best guess and they failed me. The city website? Do any of you know what the address is? phila.gov? nope.. careful.. it’s actually http://www.phila.gov.. how hard to do some DNS work and get that working right? Doesn’t matter.. if you get there, there’s nothing obvious about the upcoming election.
There’s nothing, and that’s a shame. I think they want it that way so they can stay in power. So it’s up to us to bust our buts and do research on who is actually running and then find out what we can about them all by our lonesomes.. shameful!!!
