VOTE: The Importance of the May Primary

Published Monday, April 13, 2015

Tuesday, May 5, 2015 is Primary Election Day in Indiana. If you think your vote won’t make a difference this May, think again! Voter turnout is typically lower in the Primary than in the General, however they are usually more significant and important because of our political makeup. As you may know, many areas in Indiana may be dominated by a single party. As a result of our political landscape, the May Primary victors will most likely win the General Election in November. MORE This means that we must be extra careful in reviewing and considering candidates for the Primary. Most importantly though, it is extremely important to VOTE in May. It is not unusual for candidates to win or lose by a narrow margin. Remember that YOU determine which candidates are on the ballot this November by voting this May in the Primary.

Your vote absolutely will have an impact. Please take a moment to review your ballot by TODAY.
