Attention North Salem Democrats: Even though our local elections for Supervisor, Town Board, Highway Superintendent and Tax Receiver are uncontested this fall, it is still vital that you vote!! There are important competitive elections for County Executive, County Legislator, County Clerk and Supreme Court Justice for the 9th Judicial District. There are also several very important propositions on the ballot in November. Unless you have been paying close attention, you may have missed them:

Proposal 1 would amend the apportionment and redistricting process.

Proposal 2 would establish a constitutional right to clean air, clean water and a healthful environment for all New Yorkers.

Proposal 3 would eliminate the ten-day advance voter registration requirement.

Proposal 4 would eliminate the requirement that a voter provide a reason for voting by absentee ballot.

Proposal 5 would increase the jurisdictional amount in controversy for New York City Civil Court from $25,000 to $50,000.

Proposal 6 would revise the County Ethics Code.
