Double check the calendar – it’s Valentine’s Day and not April Fool’s day – but nevertheless – tomorrow is in fact Election Day in New Jersey.  If your municipality has Fire Districts (Hopewell Borough, Hopewell Twp., Pennington, Hamilton – but not Ewing, for example) tomorrow you can approve the budget, tax rate and elect fire commissioners (Fire districts can levy taxes and spend money on our behalf, afterall).  Maybe you got a sample ballot in the mail or maybe you’re like me and did not.

Check your local muncipality for information on the location of the election (it’s more than likely at the firehouse) – which is held on the third Saturday in Februrary from 2:00pm to 9:00pm – and go vote!

And for the record, I agree with the Trenton Times – these elections should be moved to November and not hidden on a Saturday evening in February.
