Family Early Voting Party And Parade To The Polls

Celebrate early voting with a superhero themed family voting party and parade!

Your child can vote in their Halloween costume! Cool right?

 

Election Day is less than 2 weeks away. Millions of American adults will enter voting booths and cast their votes for the next president of the United States. Most adults may have to wait until November 8 to choose, but Charlotte area children don’t. They can make their voices heard this Saturday at the Family Early Voting Party and Parade To The Poles!

The Queen City-honored mock election is for kids too young to go to the official booths. By casting their votes kids can have their say about who should be our next president.

Their votes may not be official, but the results are often very telling. In other polls  the results of the kids’ election have mirrored the national outcome all but two times: In 1948, more kids voted for Thomas E. Dewey than for Harry S. Truman, and in 1960, they selected Richard M. Nixon over John F. Kennedy.

You can use our facebook page to see what is going on in the city during the 2016 election before casting your vote.

Wednesday Wow: My Candidate did NOT WIN last night!

The votes have been counted. All the wings and spicy shrimp and chips are all eaten, and the “Vote For Me” street signs have all gone and I’m left wondering how such a great guy miss the mark.

You gotta see his video—>  Ramuntu For Mayor  <—–Click there!

I voted for this guy BECAUSE:

  • Proven record of leadership
  • He thinks before he speaks
  • He does what he says he’ll do. I don’t always like it but I know what to expect.
  • Great line up of supporters
  • He LOVES Charlotte

As a back up, I had just two other candidates I considered voting for the mayor seat. It was DAVID Howard and Jennifer Roberts. Here’s what news since last night election.

David L. Howard
Good morning,

Exhausted, emotional, tired, disappointed are all words that could describe how I feel this morning…..and to some extent, I have felt them all. However the overriding feeling I have this morning is one of PRIDE! My campaign was counted out so many times since we started in January, and yet we raised over $250,000 and came so close to forcing a run-off. We also introduced and shared a progressive and pragmatic vision for moving Charlotte, a city I love with all my heart – forward.

I have received dozens of well wishes and thoughts since last night…..and will respond to every one of them. I just wanted to say that Mary and I could not be more appreciative of the hard work everyone put into making the ‘HOWARD FOR MAYOR’ campaign one we can all be proud of. It was based on real ideas for real people. One of integrity, dedication, compassion and focused on keeping Charlotte competitive for decades to come.

I’m not sure what comes next, but am excited about having that conversation with God. Stay tuned, and again THANK YOU everyone that volunteered, worked and/or that prayed for the ‘HOWARD FOR MAYOR’ campaign.

Thank you!
David

And my other is favorite: Jennifer Roberts.

jennShe is could very well be our next mayor ! She has proven to be friend to environment, business and education alike!

Good luck to whom ever wins the Mayor of Charlotte race.

The 2016 presidential election is still several months away from now. We can still make further and deeper research to know who really is the one who will become the best president for our country.

Let us vote based on the capability, effectiveness and efficiency of the person, not on his or her popularity. Let’s vote for a president who will develop, not only our own province, but our whole country. Let’s support leaders, not because we are their solid loyalists, but because they can provide solid services.

Let’s elect leaders who will transform our nation into progress, not leaders who will transport our money to their pockets.

Ooh, and if you ever run into Cornell West, tell him he’s the greatest!!! He’s been traveling with Bernie. I met him at Winthrop the other Sunday. See how it went! (Click here)

See you later, Jabela, QC Supermom
Bernie not trump
