It is extremely important to vote in every election, but I feel this one is even more important for women. The Legislation Committee is striving to make sure everyone votes. You can register to vote, up to AND including election day. You can even register online, but the deadline for this is Oct. 21st. You can also vote by mail. These should be mailed by Oct. 24th to insure it is received by the election authority on Nov. 1. I will have ballot applications at the Oct. Meeting. We will be having a raffle at the Nov. Meeting, and everyone who voted will be entered to win. You can bring your "I voted" sticker, or post a picture with your sticker on Facebook to enter. If you vote by mail, just let me know and I'll get you entered. See you at the polls.

Every Vote Counts!
