Make the Change!

City elections will be held on May 9, 2015. Elections decide the leadership that guides legislation and enforcement of regulations. The right to vote is something many people take for granted, but elsewhere in the world many people have no say with regard to their political leaders, which only emphasizes the importance of participating in the election process whenever you’re afforded the opportunity to do so.
The first step to prepare for Election Day is to confirm your eligibility. Age, legal residency and citizenship status are just a few of the factors that may affect your eligibility to vote. Be sure you are registered to vote. The city of Duncanville needs everyone to vote this May election. If you are unsure if you are registered you may contact the Dallas County Elections Department at 214-819-6300.
Before voting, voters should research the respective candidates for each election. Read as much as you can on the candidates’ beliefs, concerns and voter history. This will help you make the best decision possible. During the next few weeks I will be showing you certain candidates voting record and how their votes have affected you. I am still compiling open records request for this task.
Elections are on the horizon and preparing now can help you as a voter to make educated and sound choices at the polls. Watch the city council meetings on cable or go to the city website to watch the latest council meeting.
This election can bring the change in Duncanville’s leadership! District 1, District 3, District 5 and at Large are the seats that will be determined. We all need to vote on May 9, 2015 to make the change!!!!
