The One Surefire Way to Make Your Voice Heard
November 01, 2018 / Tammy Flanagan
I just mailed in my ballot for the midterm elections. It isn’t always easy to decide who to vote for among candidates seeking local, state and national office. And often there are other ballot measures to consider, such as amendments to your state constitution. I found information about the candidates and ballot measures on the websites of my local county supervisor of elections and various news organizations. It was time-consuming, but a lot easier than the old days of gathering information by clipping newspaper articles and attending live events. Federal employees, retirees, and survivor annuitants have items of particular interest when deciding on candidates for seats in Congress. After all, the federal laws these legislators write govern their retirement and insurance benefits.
