As you know, in addition to the upcoming presidential election, there are numerous local, state and national elections coming up this year. If you haven’t already registered to vote or if you’ve recently moved, now would be a good time to verify your voter registration, and either register or update your information so that you’ll be ready to vote for your favorite candidate or issues.
