Today's the day to exercise your right that others worldwide strive for.

Yes, this Election Day doesn't have the same bite as most.  There's no big personalities running for national office, but voting is important no matter the subject because it's what makes us the most basic right we have in a free nation.

 

This day there are several constitutional matters, regional bond elections, and some school and city positions on ballots throughout the area.

Also this is the first election since the Voter I.D. law was upheld.  So we'll see how that plays out.

Here's a few highlights of what's on area ballots...
