Municipal Elections 2014 – Cast Your Vote!
A municipal election will be held on Monday, October 27, 2014. All Catholics are strongly encouraged to exercise their democratic right to vote. To help us all get to know the candidates for Catholic School Board Trustee, Cardinal Collins has given permission for candidates to distribute literature to parishioners departing Mass on weekends from September 27/28 to October 25/26. We hope you’ll take the time to get to know those seeking elected office. To ensure your vote for Catholic School Trustee, at the polling booth, verify that you are registered as a separate school supporter. If your support status is incorrect ask for an Application to Amend Voters’ List. This form may be completed and submitted at the polling station.
Thank you for your interest and involvement in this fall’s municipal election!
