How to get caught up for the election

| October 18, 2012

Haul the Vote, created by a group of carriers, provides a great resource for getting registered to vote, seeing who will be on your ballot, and learning about issues inside and outside of trucking. If you’d like a more detailed look at how early and absentee voting works and individual state policies on it, check this recent Overdrive story  by Editor Randy Grider.

Haul the Vote has a good roundup of trucking issues, including owner-operator topics, hours of service, diesel prices, tolls and highway privatization. It doesn’t tell you where President Obama and Mitt Romeny appear to stand on them, but a separate section does make a brief stab at trucking-related aspects of their records.

You’ll also see the candidates’ stances on other matters of importance to you, such as taxes and health.

    I’ll vote for Mitt Romney, we have had enough of Odummer’s 4 years and 16.5 trillion dollar deficits, we CANNOT afford another 4 years of Obozo, he’s got to go and not fast enough for this country. We can’t afford his $ 5.00 a gallon fuel anymore, or we’ll all go bankrupt as well.
