Election Day this year is November 3. It is a municipal election year. While not as grand or dramatic as a presidential year, these elections are exceedingly important to our everyday lives. Seats for local mayors and city council members are on the ballot. These elected officials make policy decisions that affect critical issues such as taxes, public education, safety, and infrastructure.
