On the ballot for the Presidency, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green). Make a special note to remember to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson and Dr. Jill Stein to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1

I would like to know why after 10 years of voting at the school 6 blocks away from my home the one my granddaughter attends I now have to go to a school miles away. I just love how all these decisions are made with no input from the tax payers.

I agree with you Theresa. Carrrolton is handicapped accessible through the loading dock doors by the dumpster area. This was the alleged excuse given to us for the change. That door leads to the gym and rest of the school. There also is an elevator to gain access to the upper floors.

That is because of all the expensive and unnessesary recalls hoisted on us by the union led democratic party. All of this was because of a few cry babies couldnt get their way.

It is always remarkable to me to go and vote and see everyone else, from all walks of life and all political persuasions, doing their citizen duty. Yay, America! Yay, Oak Creek!

Amen Tom. Those of us that actually are excercising this right are only the ones that have the ability to complain if and when that need arises. Those that don't get the government they deserve. :-)

Anyone who has to curse to make a point in public cannot be taken seriously. Tammy, the public is not as stupid as you think.

How was parking at Deerfield? Seemed like it could be an issue during peak voting hours, not sure how it was early this morning.
