A Sign Thou Shouldst Heed

I sighted this sign at the site of the original Hazel Hawkins Hospital on Monterey Street in historical downtown Hollister.

I'm hooking up at Signs, Signs today. Come check out signs from other parts of the world by clicking here.

Register to Vote!

Are you qualified to vote, but haven't registered yet?

To qualify in California, you must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old on Election Day, and a resident of California.  You may not be qualified if you have a felony criminal conviction or currently in a correctional facility, or if a court says you are mentally incompetent.

You'll need to re-register to vote if you moved or changed your name since the last election. Should you want to change your political party, you'll need to re-register, too.

You can register to vote up to 15 days before an election. Our next election is Tuesday, November 4. That means the last day for registration is October 20, 2014.

Three Ways to Register to Vote

You can register in person. In San Benito County, go to the Registrar of Voters office located at 440 Fifth Street, Room 206. That's the second floor of the old courthouse.

Your can register by mail. Pick up a voter registration application at the public library, U.S. post office, Department of Motor Vehicle office, or  San Benito County Registrar of Voters office.

You can register online at the California Online Voter Registration website.

There are no excuses. Go out and vote!

Are You Ready to Vote?

I'm still reading up on the candidates and propositions. It's not easy finding information that I can easily understand. Here are some links for local and state items that I've found useful. Maybe they'll come in handy for you, too. Remember, voting day is Tuesday, November 6.

Local Candidates and Issues
You can view videotapes of mayoral candidates and a few other local candidates at Community Media Access Partnership (CMAP). Here's the link.

On 10/16 and 10/17 the Farm Bureau hosted a candidate forum. On Channel 17, you can watch the videotape of the two nights. You can find the schedule for its showing at this CMAP link

San Benito County Today is the Web site for the Hollister Free Lance. By registering (it's free), you can read articles about candidates and Measure E, as well as opinion pieces by the candidates and their supporters (or not supporters).
