425K Voter Guides Snail-Mailed by Elections Department
By Todd Swindell and Michael Petrelis

Now that paper version of the voter guide has been sent via the U.S. Postal Service by the Department of Elections, it truly feels like election season here. Early voting begins on Monday, October 6th at City Hall.

We're quite curious how many of the 425,000 pamphlets the department stated were sent this week, will be read by voters and what influence candidate statements have on how ballots are cast.

Needless to say, we hope our statement swings a robust number of ballots in our direction.

In the Merrigan-Petrelis household, we generally read the guide together one morning over breakfast and try not to get into too heavy a political discussion. Merrigan looks at it again when he fills out his mail-in ballot.

On the other hand, Petrelis clips the pages of most interest about ballot measures and takes them with him on election day when he votes at his polling station.
