The 2009 election has snuck up on most of us. Good thing they have a contest for Gov. of NJ and the road side signs are up to remind us there is such a thing as an off-year election. Turn out today will likely be light, but there are plenty of reasons to cast a ballot. Bucks DA, county judges in Montco, local school boards and even some political intrigue on the municipal level. For those who decide not to participate in today's election miss out on impacting races most likely influenced by a single vote and in races that you will decide representatives who you might actually have a chance to talk to and influence yourself. So vote.
