One of the key points at the recent TEA parties was that citizens must be informed, get involved, and VOTE.

Perhaps the first opportunity to see if this message is resonating with citizens will be the elections on Saturday, May 9. As several speakers pointed out at the Wilson County TEA party on April 15, it’s crucial to effective government that Americans get involved, beginning at the local level.

Floresville voters must decide on accepting or rejecting the 13 proposed changes to the Home Rule charter in addition to voting for two members of the city council. (For information about the charter amendments, see information provided by the Home Rule Charter Commissioner Advisory Committee. The three part-series can be seen here: http://www.wilsoncountynews.com/articles.php?c=7&sm=16&n=local-news-election-coverage )

While voters in La Vernia, Stockdale, and Poth do not have elections in their towns because there were no contested races, they still have the responsibility of voting for Wilson County’s representative on the Evergreen Underground Water Conservation District. This means that all voters in Wilson County must make a trip to the Wilson County Courthouse, as this is the only polling place for that election.

This is not exactly easy and convenient. Even the early voting, which ends Tuesday, was being held only at the courthouse, and there were no extended voting hours. This makes it almost impossible for those living in areas of the county outside Floresville and for those working in San Antonio to cast their vote early unless they take vacation time off from work.
Voting on Saturday will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
