VOTING: It's Your Right, and It's Your Responsibility

More articles »

Welcome to our annual Election Edition!  You cannot turn on the TV or radio this year without hearing about the elections.  Unfortunately, not much of that coverage tells you much about the how and why of voting, just the who is running.  Knowing the basics of voting now will take away some of the stress you might feel about voting - and give you more time to decide which candidates will best represent you in the White House, Congress, State Legislature, and county courthouse.  

Inside this issue you'll hear from two county auditors about why its important to vote, and why registering to vote early can save time and make sure your vote is counted.  You'll find important timelines, opportunities to help others get out the vote, information on a special election in the Davenport area, and more in this issue of infoNET.

So read on and get ready to Make Your Mark on (or before) Tuesday, November 8, 2016!
