Remember to vote Tuesday!

An important reminder from my fellow CAC chair Philip Poe of the Five Points CAC:

In 2009, only 11% of the voters in Raleigh found the time to cast their votes for the Raleigh City Council and Board of Education. Check your calendar and make sure you block off time to make it to the polls next Tuesday.

A page containing voter information was just posted on the Five Points CAC website. It will give you quick access to your voter information and ballot, voter guides, broadcast times for candidate forums on RTN10, endorsements and information about the transportation and housing bond proposals.

Do you have neighbors that require assistance getting to the polls? Consider organizing a neighborhood shuttle to help these folks vote.
