Now is the time to start preparing to vote. Ballots will be mailed in three weeks. With all the focus on the Presidential and Senatorial races, I am afraid people are neglecting to educate themselves about the other candidates on the ballot. Case in point is the race to represent the Third Congressional District (CD3) in the U.S. House of Representatives. For the past ten years, our district has been represented by Scott Tipton.

So we will have a new Representative in Congress come 2021.
