Now that the Good Neighbors Blitz of Oct. 7-8 is in the history books, plans are already underway for the spring Blitz slated for April 7-8, 2017.

Early voting continues from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. daily through Friday, Nov. 4 and Election Day is Nov. 8. The Presidential Election takes top billing, but local voters will also elect state representatives, judges, and decide important school and road projects.
