1. November Election and Ballot Initiatives:
Even though its not a Presidential Election, there are many important issues and elected positions on the ballot. Ballots were mailed out YESTERDAY and the election is November 8th. This means you have three weeks to send in your ballot. Check it, stamp it, and mail it. Buy stamps at the U-Bookstore (Odegaard Branch) and at the post office at 42nd and University Way.
There are three important state initiatives on the ballot this year. Please educate yourself on these by checking out the “Yes” and “No” arguments so you can make an informed decision.
