After Labor Day, “Vote, Vote, Vote !!!” is loudly proclaimed from the rooftops. But where is all this excitement about voting in the Primary elections? Real democracy happens in Primary Season – starting in January and ending not long after Memorial Day.
Talk to your friends, family, and social clubs starting in January. Don’t accept the idea that anyone is a “shoe in” or “can’t win”. Find out which candidates line up best with your concerns. That’s the time to ask the tough questions. The primary is the people’s opportunity to reject the establishment’s choice in favor of another candidate.
Make sure you vote in the primary! Your vote counts for more than it does in the November election because fewer people vote in the primary. “Primary Awareness” is the realization that the primary elections are where we the people have real choices and a greater voice.
