Helping democracy

Benjamin I. Green

I’d just like to thank all the members of the community who volunteered their time on Saturday to staff tables in El Jebel, Carbondale and Glenwood to register people to vote and get information out about the upcoming caucuses.

Roughly 20 people spent part of their Saturday performing this service that’s vital to the health of our democracy. In eight hours, we registered about 70 people and handed out at least that many mail-in registration applications.

I’d like to congratulate our volunteers and thank them for an excellent job on Saturday. We’ll be doing another voter registration drive soon, so keep an eye out for notices!
