You too, New Jersey!!
As I’m sure all you residents of Virginia and New Jersey are aware, we have rather significant local elections coming up this November. Whoever you’re going to vote for, it’s important that you learn as much as you can ahead of time, not only about the candidates themselves, but about how to ensure that your vote is properly counted.
It’s for that reason that I’m writing this, to remind our beloved military personnel that the deadline for absentee voting is coming up soon! In fact, it’s so soon, it’s just about a week away!!
The deadline for mailing absentee ballots from overseas is October 5th!
Don’t let your overseas deployment cause your vote to go uncounted!!
To learn more about this deadline and what all you need to do to ensure that your absentee vote gets counted, visit the following websites:
As always, I want to offer my sincerest gratitude to everyone serving in every single branch of our nation’s military! As a military brat myself, I’ve seen just what that service entails, up close and personal, for as long as I can remember. It’s certainly not an easy job, but one I thank you for. Keep up the great work and please know that my family’s thoughts & prayers are out there with you, no matter where you’re serving!
Oh yeah, and don’t forget to vote!!
