Just Vote

My production company did some work for Nike last year. I'll borrow their slogan for a moment and say, "Just Do It - Vote."

We have a special election today. We will elect someone to fill the remainder of former Mayor Kwame M. Kilpatrick's term of office, which will last until January 1, 2010.

We will also vote on whether or not to start the process of revising the City of Detroit's Charter. If Proposition C is approved today, we will select a commissioners to a revision charter commission in November. This commission will then formulate a new charter for the City and present it to the voters again sometime next year. It's a relatively long process, but it starts with a "yes" vote on Proposition C.

That is unless you have no interest in seeing any aspect of the City Charter revised. In which case, just vote "no" on Proposition C and the idea of will die.

Either way, please just do it. Vote.
