This Week at the Law Library: Election Edition

Tuesday, November 4th is Election Day.

You’d have to have shut yourself in a cave not to know it, but we nevertheless remind you that Tuesday is Election Day, as provided by law(s); e.g., Federal, Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana (No link here, the provision is at Ind. Code § 3-10-2-1.) If you have not already voted under your jurisdiction’s early voting provisions, please do vote on Tuesday. Your voice is as important as anyone else’s, and while the apparent impact of a single vote varies among races, every citizen has a stake in participating in governance.
