"All politics is local," was one of the truest statements in political history that former Democratic Speaker of the House Tip O'Neil would share with anyone within earshot.  It's hard to believe that it's time to vote again in the Gem State.  However, this time there won't be a governor, president or congressional candidate on the ballot.  This voting cycle is all about who runs your local city or town.  Tip would be proud as candidates run for office big or small.  And so it begins this Monday, October 21st, early voting will be available in Ada County for the November 5th election. Early voting is available from Monday, October 21st through Friday, November 1st.  If you can't make it during the week,  Saturday voting will also be available on October 26th at Ada County Elections and at the mobile voting unit at the Lake Hazel Community Library.
