Many voters consider “off year” elections to be less important than presidential-year elections. That’s just not true.
As elections get closer to home (congressional to state to local), the voting districts get smaller. This means that there are fewer people casting a ballot, meaning the candidates have fewer votes to compete for. This makes each vote weigh even more. Not only that, but decisions made at the local or state level often lead to more immediate change in your community…the further up you get, the slower improvements or changes to policy can come. But this also means that damage can be done more quickly.
So whether you are a student, a young professional, a homeowner, a retiree, or a a single parent, it’s important to vote in each and every election. Take the time to know your candidates and vote for that person who best represents your view for the future of our community. As residents of this wonderful community, we depend on our local elected officials to represent the voters – show your support with your vote. All 6 candidates (3 Democrats and 3 Republicans) in the race for Tredyffrin’s Board of Supervisors are endorsed candidates and will appear on the November 3 ballot. In this year’s election there are 2 At-Large seats and the seat in the middle available. For the first time in a very long time there are no incumbents for the 2009 election in the Board of Supervisor race for Tredyffrin Township.
