Get out and vote

Posted: Sunday, August 24, 2008

Some people may think Tuesday's pri-mary election isn't worth getting out of their easy chair to take part in, but we sure hope those on the Kenai Peninsula feel differently.

In addition to the races for U.S. House, Senate and the peninsula, there are four ballot measures that need to be decided by you.

You also should know about the ballots you'll be asked to choose from when you go to vote. Your choices are:

* Ballot Measures Only. This contains no candidates. Any registered voter may select this option.

* Republican Candidate and Ballot Measures. This only lists Republican candidates and the measures. Voters registered as Republican, undeclared and nonpartisan may select this option.

* A-D-L and Ballot Measures. This ballot lists Alaskan Independence, Democrat and Libertarian candidates and the measures. Any registered voter may select this ballot.

We know our readers can be passionate about their politics, and we encourage you to know who and what you're voting for when you step into the booth Tuesday.

To find out more about all of the ballot measures, visit the state's Division of Elections' Web site at www.elections.alaska.gov/2008_prim_info.php.

Polling place listings can be found at www.elections.alaska.gov/polling.php. The peninsula districts are 33, 34 and 35.

The Clarion also will list polling places in Monday's paper.
