Like them or not, we gave you our endorsements for this election season, which you can check out here for a refresher before finally turning in your early ballot (which are due today, but can be taken to any polling place on Tuesday) or heading to your polling place on Tuesday.
When it comes to the race for the Tucson Unified School District governing...well, there are 12 candidates, including three incumbents we didn't endorse.
Through the power of social media everyone is getting in on the endorsement action and reminding folks to vote — including Tucson City Councilwoman Regina Romero. This was brought up to us by folks still frustrated that voters may focus on only two candidates and not three, even though there are three seats available.
In one post, Romero made it clear she was endorsing three candidates — Cam Juarez, Kristel Foster and Betts Putnam Hidalgo:
And there's what I'm calling this election season, "Hey, take a looksee at my early ballot" shot. Kids, everyone is doing it — in this Facebook day and age, voting isn't as private as it used to be:
Oh no, Regina, you didn't forget to fill in that third oval? Well, hopefully she remembered after posting her looksee. If you're still thinking about your choices, it's understandable — 12 candidates makes it difficult. Since Romero put Putnam Hidalgo on her first endorsement post, we'll include an interesting Q&A interview with the candidate by Jeff Biggers in an Oct. 25 Huffington Post piece you can read here.
Good luck making your final decision.
