2011 Primary Election

Heather Bohrer

On Tuesday, March 1st, you will have an opportunity to select the candidates that will run in the general election on April 5th. Voting in these local elections is very important because local elected officials make decisions that have a huge effect on our daily lives. City council and the mayor vote on city ordinances and projects like noise ordinances for live music, TIF funding, even on adopting a downtown master plan. YPW’s Political Awareness sub-committee wants to help you make an educated vote so that you are represented in the decisions made in your hometown.
