Before you hunker down for Bikes, Blues and BBQ, take half an hour today and go vote in your local school board election. I say half an hour because, unfortunately, school board elections typically draw an abysmal turnout – which means short lines and a vote that packs a lot of punch.
Don’t know who’s running in your district? Check out this list.
