Elections 2017

Today, I voted in Somerville’s municipal election. There’s not much being contested in my Somerville ward, just a mayoral decision and six candidates running for four slots as alderman at large. However, as I’ve said before, local elections can turn on a single vote, so turnout is important. More importantly, voting is a right and a privilege. I choose once again to honor that privilege to its fullest extent.

Oh, and I also listed to another talk in the Factual Democracy series that I’ve been glued to, this time on “Combating Hate Online & Off.” This was the least interesting of the series so far, mostly because the speakers went on for too long, without allowing for dialague.
