Don't overlook any office when marking your ballot

NEIGHBORS

September 13, 1994|By NATALIE HARVEY

Today is primary election day, so please vote!

Whatever your schedule, take the time to cast your ballot. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.

And vote for every office. Sometimes there is a tendency to vote for only the "name" offices.

There is always the possibility that today's candidate for a local office will someday be a "name" candidate. Know your candidates and vote. It's your government!

Have a question? Call the Board of Elections, (410) 313-2727.
