With August and November elections right around the corner, and since we’re still in the middle of the COVID-19 Pandemic and who knows when we’ll make our way out of that – this might be a good time to explore the idea of voting via absentee ballot. It’s the perfect way to make your vote count while practicing social distancing.

Township Clerk Becky Chown sent along a note and said that Peninsula Township is urging all registered voters who aren’t already on the Permanent Absentee Voter List to email her at [email protected] and ask to be placed on this list.

All registered voters who are on this list will receive an application and ballot by mail. Who knows – maybe we’ll be able to drive to the polls and vote by August and November. But if not, this is a great thing to get set up right now and make your vote count without having to leave your house.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
