It's on!

Early voting starts today!  Here's a handy list of locations and hours via the Chapel Hill Herald:

Down-Ballot '08

I am sure you have all sorted out the Presidential race already, but there are lots of other races on the ballot this year.  About half of them are partisan (ie Dems vs. Reps), but quite a few are not.  Let's take a look at the non-partisan races...

Debate for U.S. Rep. from the 4th District

In the upcoming election, for Progressives, is BJ Lawson an alternative to Representative David Price?  BJ Lawson is running as a Republican and his winning the NC 4th Congressional District could contribute to Democrats losing control of the House.  Does BJ Lawson believe that there is no role for government in regulating the financial system or industry?

On the other hand, how in the world could the question of a Republican possibly having a chance against an incumbent Democrat of our District be possible?  Could it be related to Representative David Price taking for granted the security of his position to the point of believing that voting for the Wall Street Bail-out twice, US Patriot Act, funding the war for many years (he has recently discontinued this, thanks!), sanctioning the most recent Israeli bombardment of Lebanon, voting in favor of the Bankrupcy law, not being against the bio-defense lab of Butner, etc ... not have any repercussions?

BE AN INFORMED VOTER: Come out and find out how these candidates compare with one another TODAY!

Turn North Carolina Blue for Barack Obama!

Bring your checkbook and your desire for change to our "Turn North Carolina Blue for Barack Obama" party!

For the first time in decades, North Carolina can be the state that puts a Democrat in the White House. Senator Obama's message of change has resonated with Tar Heel voters, but his campaign needs all the help it can get as it fights against a Republican smear campaign of truly epic proportions. A representative from the Obama-Biden campaign will be on hand to share with us Senator Obama's vision for America and to tell us how we can get involved with the campaign.

Suggested contribution amounts: $25, $50, $75, $100, $200 -- and/or a firm commitment to volunteer with the Obama-Biden campaign between now and Election Day!

BABYSITTING WILL BE PROVIDED! So bring the kids and learn how you can help turn North Carolina blue for Barack Obama on November 4th!

Please RSVP directly to me no later than Monday, October 13th, so we can get some sense of numbers. Also, PLEASE NOTE: If you're bringing your children, please let us know in your RSVP the number and ages of the children. Thanks!
