Tips on making your vote count in the midterm elections

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The midterm election season is in full swing, so for those who made the Oct. 20 voter registration deadline, no need to wait until Nov. 4 to cast your ballot.

As of today, 32 of the 36 states that allow early in-person voting for the midterm elections have begun taking ballots.

If you qualify for absentee voting, there’s still time to request your ballot. Just call your county registrar of voters or county clerks office by Oct. 28 to have your ballot re-issued.

But warning – the absentee ballot may not be received by Nov. 4 if mailed in. Officials recommend bringing it to a designated drop-off station to ensure your vote is counted.

Your county registrar of voters office can also re-issue your voter information pamphlet and sample ballot if you still don’t have one.

It’s a go-to guide that consolidates info on candidates and measures in your state, county, and city
– it’s also available online.

Finally, in an effort to raise voter participation within immigrant communities, election materials are available in multiple languages, including Filipino in some regions.

San Diego County in California and Clark County in Nevada are among the areas with Filipino materials.

Check with your local election office for details.

    La Raza underground manifesto came out last month and they specify.. Hispanic vs Asian/ Caucatian(white) vote Latino(any party),Latino vs Latino vote Democrat, White/Asian vs White vote GOP, Democrat defeat will create vacancy inside the party, and it will give Latino chance to take over the Dems party because soon they will control the majority population. If you are Democrat Asian-white incumbent,against GOP Latino, throw all you money.LaRaza will vote GOP.

          Nope, but stating the facts to you is like talking to a wall. Obliviously you are a Republicklan and are bias against President Obama, no matter what the facts areare. He hasn’t done everything right nor has he done everything wrong.

            Vote Fraud is the life and breath of the Democrat party. Period. NO party that actively benefits from violating my rights and the integrity of our elections deserves to even be on the ballot.
