Marking 92 years of power to vote
Aug. 26 marks the 92nd anniversary of the constitutional amendment that granted women the right to vote. The League of Women Voters of Howard County will be busy preparing voters for this fall’s big election.
We are focused on protecting voting rights for all and making sure that everyone who is eligible to vote is able to. The League, which also was founded in 1920, does not support or oppose candidates and is not affiliated with any political party. We don’t tell you who to vote for; we just want everyone to exercise their right to vote.
Our foremothers understood that voting provided citizens the ability to have an impact on the critical issues facing their communities. We know that it all begins with getting registered. This fall, League members in Howard County will be registering voters, holding informational meetings on the township reorganization and hosting a political debate for Indiana House District 30.
To learn more about upcoming events and how to become a member of the League of Women Voters of Howard County, call Sandra Grant at 765-452-1035. For information about the election process, including polling place locations and hours, information directly from the candidates regarding their vision for America’s future, absentee ballot and early voting options, registration deadlines, ID requirements and much more, please visit www.vote411.org.
Work schedule hurts morale, productivity
Since the advent of the Absurd Work Schedule, it embarrasses me to tell people that I work for Chrysler LLC. I’m even more ashamed to admit that I pay union dues. I can’t really say that I am a union member, as I don’t seem able to get the representation those dues are supposed to guarantee.
Despite the mounting evidence that the alternate work schedule is an abysmal failure, both Chrysler and sold-you-out-house contend that it has been a success.
