The Big Story

  • Vote.
    Take your next door neighbor with you. Offer a ride to that lady across the street who doesn’t walk very well anymore. Ask that guy at work who always complains about the conservative pundits if he voted before work or is going after. Remind people that voting is the most important thing we do in a democracy. Don’t let something so silly as rain make a difference. Get out the vote!
  • Regardless of how the votes go, there will be a lot of new faces in the legislature in the next term.
  • Big names weigh in on the debate over the stem cell Ballot Question.
