With a week to go, are you ready for Election Day? - Tucson News Now

With a week to go, are you ready for Election Day?

I'm hearing from a lot of you who say you're sick and tired of all the political ads on television. But next Tuesday, it all comes to an end. And it's time to ask yourself some questions.

Are you ready to vote? Do you know what the candidates stand for? Do you understand the propositions on the ballot? If you've been sent an early ballot, have you filled it out and mailed it?

The polls show there are many races that are very close: in the city, the county, Arizona and the presidential race. 

You can't influence the outcome unless you actually cast your vote. 

If you need more information about the races and propositions, go to our Decision 2012 page on TucsonNewsNow.com. You can also look at the booklet sent to all registered voters or visit the Arizona Secretary of State's website.

Don't let time get away from you. My favorite line of this political season was when CBS anchor Bob Schieffer quoted his mother, who said, "Go vote. It makes you feel big and strong."
