Political Reminder: Monday Deadline To Vote

Monday is the final day to register to vote!  Just complete this form and mail it by tomorrow.  Or register in person at the Alameda County Registrar’s office, which stays open until midnight Monday – at 1225 Fallon Street, G-2, Oakland (map).

On the national front: We have the privilege of voting for the 44th U.S. president, and this matters even though we’re a “done-deal” state which supports Obama over McCain.

California’s still an important financing whistle stop.  Yesterday, Veep candidate Joe Biden collected a reported $2.3 million at Atherton, Piedmont and Sea Cliff events for the Democratic National Committee – all in a day’s work.

On the local front: Besides the U.S. prexy race, there are other important California propositions and more local measures on the ballot.  Let’s focus on all Oakland and Alameda County measures:

  • Measure OOOakland Fund For Children and Youth Act – League of Women Voters Says No
  • Measure NOutstanding Teachers for All Oakland Students Act – No Position By League
  • Measure NN2008 Oakland Police Services Expansion Measure – No Position By League
  • Measure VVAlameda County, AC Transit Parcel Tax Measure – League Says Yes
  • Measure WWAlameda County, East Bay Regional Park Bond Measure – League Says Yes
  • At Large Councilmember No Selection By League

There’s no doubt that Montclarions chat and clearly care about local issues like community services, kids, teachers, cops, transportation and parks.  Make sure you have registered, so you can cast your ballot on November 4th.
