PSA: There is probably some kind of election going on in your county this November.

Step 1. Find out what county you live in.

Step 2. Google "x county board of elections"

Step 3. Figure out who's running and what propositions may be on the ballot.

Step 4. Make sure you're registered to vote.

Step 5. Profit.

Yes, vote, but they never offer any good candidates. The big two parties in the US are both criminal mafias. Vote anyway though.

That is why we should have ranked choice voting...would make it easier for independents to run and win.

Regardless, even if there are only two candidates, most likely you will prefer one to the other...most people have opinions are the major issues of the day.

Also propositions are often on the ballot. Where I live there are propositions that are actually proposing changes to the State constitution. Last year we had a proposition about term limits of county officials.

Yes, I agree with all of this.

I'm just disillusioned with state and national level political options.

Side note: I'm on an organizing committee of a statewide minor political party, so obviously I haven't totally given up hope.

Yeah point was this was just to remind people that there are elections going on everywhere....as far as actual offices up for election, for me it is just my county and some town offices.

It's interesting because I tend to vote a specific party because I don't usually do that much research but on the county level issues, often time party doesn't really matter.

Like the one candidate I am looking at who I would otherwise vote for is opposed to specific development projects that I honestly don't have a problem with. Still looking at her platform to see where she stands on other issues.
