Voting is a privilege that many in America take for granted. Every vote does count, and the local races impact our lives on an everyday basis much more than our national races such as for President. During the 2011 Primary we will choose candidates for our Fall ballot for township supervisor and borough council, school board, and county row offices to name a few. We will also be choosing candidates for state judges. Please be informed and get out and exercise your right to vote! The polls are open from 7:00 am – 8:00 pm. The Snyder County Election results will be posted as they come in on the www.snydercounty.org website.
The last day to apply for a civilian absentee ballot is May 10. If there is a chance you will not be able to vote on Primary Election Day (May 17th, 2011) you should cast your vote by absentee. Do you know someone who will be needing an absentee? A student, a truck driver, a doctor or nurse who may be on call and get called in, someone who has trouble getting around, or someone going on vacation.
