I worked the Primary Runoff Election Tuesday 3/31/12. It’s something you can do if you’re on a M0W-F schedule for dialysis. It’s really easy. You can contact your local or state office of Elections and find out how to become one. For Texas, here’s a set of instructions for doing it. I don’t know if your state will be the same.
I got into this because my local political party sent out an email before the elections last May saying they needed people to work the election. Since they are on a Tuesday, it’s really convenient for me. The training was on a Saturday, so no problem there either. The class was several hours long but very entertaining. It really fascinating to see all the work and effort that goes on behind the scenes to produce an election.
I worked the election last May then the runoff this week and I may be asked to do the General Election in November. There’s a lot of excitement in the General Election because it’s the quadrennial Presidential election. I’d like to be part of that.
This week, since it was a runoff, there was a really light turnout for both parties. Actually, it’s very disappointing to see that so few people come out for a primary election but I understand. It’s not as exciting as a General Election.
If you’re not working and doing dialysis, it’s helpful to have some things to do. Just living to do dialysis is often depressing. I need something more to set my mind to, so I don’t get bored. I’m always looking for things like this to do. Think about it. Or, there may be some other things you can do. Suggestions?
