It's hard to believe that the primary elections are already this Tuesday, it's coming up very fast. I think the most important thing that we should do besides voting this Tuesday is to be an informed voter. Especially in a primary election you should really look at the candidate in a very careful manner and decide if this individual represents your beliefs and the beliefs of the party that he or she is seeking to represent on the ballot in November. I wish all the candidate running Tuesday the best of luck.
