Tuesday Afternoon in Apache Junction: Election Day Voting at Cactus Canyon Junior High School
Today was Election Day in Apache Junction, so in late afternoon we moseyed over to Cactus Canyon Junior High School
to do our civic duty in our fair city.
One council member was facing a recall election
and three other council seats were also up.
Leading citizens debated the issues outside the polling place.
It was a beautiful afternoon, sunny and about 73 degrees, perfect weather for casting a ballot.
When we gave our yellow voter registration card (we are one of our 5,000 Arizonans who belong to the Green Party and had the honor of being our party's candidate for Congress last November), we got a green ticket
to get our ballot.
We voted to re-elect our incumbent A.J. mayor -- not that we had any choice.
We fed our marked ballot into the machine
and got our "I voted" sticker.
Tonight we'll watch the exciting election returns.
