Preparing for Election Day

Tomorrow is general election day and as politicians and their supporters try to squeeze in one last commercial in between your TV shows, the Olney Post has a quick prep list to help you out for tomorrow.

1. Polls in Pennsylvania open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.

2. Find your polling place with‘s or the City’s search feature.

3. You don’t have to show state-issued ID to vote, if this is not your first time voting at that polling place.

4. The presidential nominees aren’t the only people trying to get your vote. Democrat, Republican and Libertarian nominees who want to be a senator, attorney general, auditor general or state treasurer will be on the ballot in hopes to represent you in Washington or Harrisburg respectively. State Sen. Shirley Kitchen is also running non-contested for her current job as senator of the third district.

5. There aren’t just two presidential nominees, either.  President Obama (D.) and Governor Romney (R.) have other competition for the commander-in-chief seat, including Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party and former Republican presidential nominee and governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson on the Libertarian ticket.

6. There are four questions on the ballot. City Council wants your opinion on creating an independent council to set water and sewage rates, making the city’s finance department provide more information about the mayor’s budget proposals, allowing a cop and firefighter hiring preference for the children of  cops or firefighters who died while on duty and approving that the city borrow $123,670,000 to improve city buildings, museums, transit, .etc.
