We will be voting for a new mayor as well as some city initiatives on May 21st. I will vote at my local polling place. I'll get very tired that week because I'll be working 3 12 hour shifts so colleagues can attend the NTI. (Of course I encouraged them to visit the ALLNURSES.COM booth.)
Way back I brought applications to vote by mail to work with envelopes and stamps to make it easy for people to vote. Yesterday I reminded people to be sure to put their ballot in the mail. I gave them each a stamp and one for their spouse.
Low turnout is expected so each vote counts. I asked them, "How would you feel if your candidate lost by one or two votes?"
I'm just hoping to discuss how to encourage citizens to vote.
