Tomorrow, November 6th, is election day! I came across this article with some important information for voters around the Chester County area via http://www.dailylocal.com, remember every vote counts!
Voters will be asked for identification but are not required to produce it when they show up at polls Tuesday. Chester County Voter Services Director Jim Forsythe said that while identification is not required for voters, they will be asked for it and reminded that the law may go into effect for the 2013 primary. If voters do not have a valid ID card, they will be given literature on what will be required in the future if the law is upheld by the courts, Forsythe said.The ID process may add minimal amounts of time to the wait for voting on Tuesday, Forsythe said. He added that regardless of the need for IDs, a wait may be likely.
“Because it’s a presidential race, we’re going to have longer lines, so ask people to be patient,” Forsythe said. “But long lines are a good thing, because it means people are coming out to vote.” Forsythge also said that voters with any questions about the registration status should call on Monday and not wait until Tuesday, because call volumes will be so high that day. He said the number to call is 610-344-6410.
We know it’s not specifically West Chester news but it effects everyone across the United States, therefore I just wanted to remind everyone that the second presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will be held tonight at 9 p.m.
Nearly 60 million people tuned in Oct. 3 to watch the first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. In that first confrontation, viewers and pundits claimed that Romney won, and his campaign got a bump in the polls as a result. Will Obama vindicate himself this time?
Today marks the 11th year since the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America. Today, is a day of remembrance and honor for those who lost their lives on 9/11, as well as for the people fighting to keep our country safe.
All around the world people have been paying tribute to this day of remembrance. President Obama spoke earlier this morning at the pentagon were families and military brass gathered, “Eleven times we have marked another September 11th come and gone. Eleven times, we have paused in remembrance, in reflection, in unity and in purpose, This is never an easy day.”
Romney shook the hands of a dozen or so firefighters one by one as they stood on the tarmac of O’Hare International Airport before boarding his plane to Reno, Nev., where he is scheduled to address the National Guard Association convention. “Those who would attack us should know that we are united,” Romney said in a statement. “Eleven years ago, evil descended upon our country, taking thousands of lives in an unspeakable attack against innocents. America will never forget those who perished. America will never stop caring for the loved ones they left behind. And America shall remain ever-vigilant against those who would do us harm.”
