Please be sure to vote. This is your community where your vote really does matter. People focus on the national and state elections, but then don't bother on something like this. This will affect the people who live and pay taxes in the Batavia School District every day. The last few years of school budget voting in Batavia had about 470 total voters each time. There's around 20,000 eligible voters I believe. Please vote. Stand up and be heard!

At around noon, I was #106 at Robert Morris. Not a good turnout.

My wife was 99 and I was 100. The people running the polls were helpful and friendly, and there's plenty of time to get out and vote.

there may be 20,000 eligible voters, however there is a pool of millions of ineligible voters that will help, just looking for a bus ride. millions I say. very sad. very very un-American, not fair.....
