We are all busy and may have every intention of voting, but that’s not good enough. In less than a week are the mid-term elections.
Plan ahead and know your rights before going to the polls. For instance in Virginia, know that you can cast your vote as long as you are in line by 7:00 pm before the polls close. Again, in line by 7:00 pm before the polls close.
If you have questions about any part of the voting process, and/or need a demonstration on how the voting equipment works you have the right to seek help from the election officials.
Here in Virginia, residents should take identification, but if you forget you must sign the “Affirmation of identity” statement before voting. Please be aware that you can not be turned away for failure to have ID.
If you have any problems regarding your eligibility to vote or the casting of your ballot – do not hesitate to ask the election official to call the General Registrar’s office before you leave the polling place. Again do not leave without the General Registrar’s office being contacted.
Make sure your vote count – know your voting rights. In Virginia visit the State Board of Elections at www.sbe.virginia.gov

This year’s negative political ads are often not just misleading but in some cases vicious and personal, now account for 60% of all campaign ads according to watchdog and industry estimates.
How do you feel about this increased use of political attack ads?

The midterm elections are less than two weeks away. There is a lot at stake. Despite the predictions of the media pundits that have all but officially declared the victors – we cannot allow ourselves to be discouraged or complacent. Your vote does count. It really does! The right to vote, letting your voice be heard should never be taken for granted. Choosing not to vote really shouldn’t be an option.
There are countless issues facing our country. For the millions of unemployed and underemployed it’s – Jobs. For the millions of uninsured and underinsured, it’s - Healthcare. For the children in struggling urban and rural public school systems, it’s - Education.
Our individual needs and priorities may vary, but collectively, we CAN and WILL overcome the obstacles that for too long have prevented real change. We must get out and vote for those candidates that will commit to work with our President to fulfill the promise of change that will get us back on the road to long term prosperity.
Join me on November 2! VOTE!

Recently the “Too Big to Fail” financial institutions made headlines with questionable foreclosure procedures. While the White House is opposed to a nationwide moratorium on home foreclosures, Attorney Generals in all 50 states have launched an investigation.
What actions do you think should be taken to deal with this foreclosure crisis?

The mid-term election campaigns are in full swing with negative ads, media hype and spin. In a tit for tat kind of way, the candidates will duke it out to be the last man or woman standing, which unfortunately is likely to be determined by who has the biggest purse.
For an economy supposedly rebounding from a recession, the enormous amount of money being spent is obscene. How does $140 million dollars strike you? California Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman has reportedly already spent this record amount averaging over three million dollars a week. It seems like such a waste in light of the fact that we, the voters, learn little or nothing about theses big spenders other than their net worth and price tag that they and their benefactors are willing to pay for power.
We have to do our homework and dig deep beyond the big bucks, glitz and negative ads to sort out the best candidate. There are some things money shouldn’t be able to buy! A political office should be one of them.
Don’t be bought, cast your vote for the candidate worthy of your vote!

Mayor Bloomberg and Governor Paterson are proposing a ban of the purchase of sugary drinks with food stamps in the city of New York in an attempt to fight obesity.
Does this proposal unfairly single out low income residents? Has government gone too far? What do you think?

The President explains that even as we focus on creating jobs immediately, we must also ensure the economy is better for our children by investing in education – not cutting it by 20% as Congressional Republicans propose.

It was truly an honor and pleasure to join the tens of thousands on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for the One Nation Working Together March on 10. 02. 10. Americans of every political party, age, faith, sex, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation and ability were invited and welcomed fueled by hope, pride and determination to move our country forward.
I watched in awe as the energy and enthusiasm grew to heights not seen since the months and days leading up to the 2008 Presidential election. I believe 10. 02. 10 was the beginning of a movement – a movement to reclaim the dream of jobs, justice and education for ALL –a movement to end the gridlock on Capitol Hill and most importantly - a movement to the polls on 11. 02. 10.
It is not too late! Capture the spirit of One Nation Working Together. Join the movement and march to Election Day on 11. 0 2 .10 and beyond to move our country forward!
