Register to Vote!

A nifty little article in today's Advocate lays out all that you need to know to fulfill your civic duty on the July 16th Fiber Optic Referendum. Vote!

If you are not registered or if you have changed your name or residence since you last voted you need to trek down to the registrar of voters next to the courthouse and get it straight. If you're fine but you know friends or family who need to do so offer to take them down there and treat 'em to lunch at Dwyers or T-Coon's—after they register. (No need to get fancy, after all this is a duty!)

The Advocate story has all the details, hours of operation, holiday days, address, and more.

As a little lagniappe: If there is any chance you'll be in Cancun (or Minden) on July 16th you need to start thinking about your absentee ballot. Mark your calendars. Absentee voting runs from July 5th to July 9th.

John,

I've registered to vote in Lafayette using your address. You can forward my mail to PO Box 612 in Grand Coteau. When do you want to do lunch?

Bout voting. Hey, at least right now, I'm serious about this stuff. If you do that I'll clip all your coupons and put it in my savings account. So there.

Bout Lunch: Name the time and place. I'm unusually busy at the moment (wry smile) but we might could make it work out before the 16th of July. After that it will be much easier. :-)
