It’s time for another Stace Slate and it’s a big one as is our ballot in the Democratic Primary. My picks are based on observation, issues, and information found along the way, mostly thanks to Charles Kuffner and the Erik Manning spreadsheet. Sometimes, all it takes is a candidate to ask nicely for support. (Note: The ones that asked nicely this year don’t even have opponents in the Primary, so, there’s a lesson for challengers and incumbents alike.) It never fails that half the candidates are happy with my picks and the other half not so much. Hopefully, we can all unite for November.
DosCentavos is not a PAC, no memberships are needed, no ads are required to be purchased as with some other sites, and there’s no club vote. It’s mostly just me, as well as some discussion with friends and siblings regarding what we think about certain candidates. When it comes time to vote, many friends and relatives ask me my thoughts, or for a list of candidates for whom to vote. So, the Stace Slate is a tradition that is in its 17th year.
Also, there won’t be minions at polling locations passing out cards. So, print it out and take it with you!
Early voting begins on February 14th and continues through February 25th. Then, Primary Day is March 1. Find your sample ballot and early voting location here.
