Your Vote is Your Voice

"Your vote is your voice." 

If you are a registered voter in Ada County you can cast your ballot now through Nov. 2 
at the Ada County Elections Office on 400 N. Benjamin Lane from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
Monday through Friday.

It's also important for citizens to know how to work the voting machines or to mark 
the ballots they'll be using when they vote, so that their votes will be counted.  
Why vote? Because in America, that is the way we change things. 
That is the way we reform the system. That is the way we guard against the
 threats to our liberties and exercise our responsibilities. That is the way that we keep 
America free and every vote counts.  An election might be decided by a single 
vote and history would be changed because a person got...or lost...that one vote!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Millions of men and women get diagnosed with breast cancer every year.  
One in eight women or 12.6% of all women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. 
 Breast cancer risk increases with age and every woman is at risk.  Every 13 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer.  Breast cancer is preventable if detected at an early stage.
