I send out my votes in case people have not had time to sort out their ballot. I’ve been doing it since 2010 and had a lot of positive feedback. I’m a parent, involved in the community and very focused on education and retaining an income diverse (read - the middle class) San Francisco.
My views reflect that. I vote based on what makes sense and seems reasonable to me. I have been a registered Independent voter since I was 18. Inside San Francisco, I would look like a moderate. In Washington, I might look more like a progressive. But I really just want to be reasonable and have the best possible future for all.
Our lives are so busy; I hope that this helps you shortcut to your own decisions – go vote!
