Are you feeling cheated because you didn't get around to changing your voter registration to Democrat or Republican before the deadline to vote in Arizona's Feb. 5 presidential primary? Do you live out of state but wish you could vote for a Project White Candidate?
Here's your chance: You can vote online for the candidate who gets the Tucson Weekly's Readers' Nomination!
The winners of the Readers’ Endorsement will also appear in TW’s Jan. 31 issue, right alongside the winner of the TW Endorsement.
Here’s how it’s going to work: We’ve set up a new Web site, Project White House Polling Central Headquarters.
We’re beginning with a Primary Primary for both parties. Both the Democratic and Republican candidates have been split into five divisions. The top vote-getter in each division will advance to a final round to win the Tucson Weekly Readers’ Endorsement.
You can vote for one candidate in each division. We’ll be tracking IP addresses, so don’t try to stuff the ballot box. It’s one computer, one vote!
The deadline for the first round is noon on Tuesday, Jan. 22—two weeks before the Feb. 5 election day.
We’ll also have a daily poll asking questions about the presidential race.
Best of all, you can spread these polls yourself, provided you can get the code to work in your e-mail or Web site. You’ll see instructions when you cast your ballot.
Let the voting begin!
