A reminder to all my neighbors in Brooklyn's City Council District 40: Vote today in the special election to select our next City Council-person. Polls are open until 9pm tonight.
[The voter reminder postcard I received refers to this as the "SPECIAL ELECTION for the 40th Councilmanic District ...". I love that.]
I already voted this morning on my way to the subway. Our polling place is P.S. 139; the main entrance is 330 Rugby Road, just up the block from Courtelyou Road. The voting sheet looked very odd, with just one row at the top of the sheet, and not enough room to list all 11 candidates! Turnout was extremely light. The winner of this election is likely to do so by a handful of votes. Every vote counts, unlike some elections [g].
