A rather eccentric and folksy professor of mine in undergraduate school used to say, "It's too late to feed the donkey at the bottom of the hill." His reference was to cramming for exams, but the metaphor works as well for preparing to cast an informed vote. If you're a Democrat still trying to educate yourself about the seven candidates vying to be the Democrat who will challenge John Faso in November, there are two good chances to feed your donkey coming up.
Today, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., WAMC is hosting a live debate among the seven candidates.
The debate will be broadcast live on WAMC, and if you listen online, you can also see a live video of the event.
On Monday, June 4, the seven candidates will be at Montgomery C. Smith Intermediate School right here in Hudson for a debate presented by the League of Women Voters.
This debate takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event is free, but tickets are required. Click here to get your ticket and secure your spot.
The primary takes place on Tuesday, June 26--just a little more than three weeks from now. If you are not registered to vote, tomorrow, June 1, is the last day to register in order to vote in the primary on June 26. Also, to vote in this primary, you must be a registered Democrat.
