Let it never be said that I don't respond to my readers!
Batgirl wrote in, asking for some details about voting in the run off election, so here are the quick facts:
April 8th, 2008 is the actual "election day" for the run off vote.
March 31st - April 4th are the early voting days (at a minimum. I'm not sure if it extends into the weekend). Somebody let me know if I'm wrong on that.
Fact # 1 - if you failed to vote in the March 4th election, you CAN still vote in the run off.
Fact # 2 - if you did vote on March 4th, you CAN ONLY VOTE in run offs for the party in which you voted on March 4th. In other words, if you voted in the Democratic Primary on March 4th, you CAN NOT vote in the Republican run off (and vice versa).
Fact # 3 - if you are eligible to vote in the run off, you can vote for whoever you want to, regardless of who you voted for on March 4th.
For example, if you made the grave mistake of voting for Pat Lykos on March 4th, you can amend your mistake by voting for Kelly Siegler on April 8th. (Sorry, I just couldn't resist that one.)
Fact # 4 - run off elections almost always have a significantly lower turnout than the earlier vote. Don't make the mistake of thinking that all the dust has already settled. Good candidates still need your vote. They need your votes now, more than ever, actually.
REMEMBER TO VOTE IN THE RUN OFF!!!!!!
