Vote early, vote often
In case you don't read Tagalog, that there is a sample ballot for the May 17 mayoral election. We've picked our horse and figure we better place our bets early, since we'll be far, far away on election day. Luckily anybody can vote absentee, and it's easy: download the PDF vote-by-mail form, fill it out and send it to the city clerk. They send you your ballot, which you can send back as late as May 10. If you prefer the trip to the polling station (those little flags are cute, aren't they?), find yours here. This whole voting thing might be just crazy enough to work.
