Fighting To The End For Votes

LA MESA -- Election Day 2014 may become known as the year the voters mailed it in.
Precincts throughout La Mesa were reporting extremely slow turnout in the sometimes busy "before work" hours and poll workers attributed it to the number of voters using mail in ballots this year.
Country voting officials said mail in ballots already in hand were running at about 20 percent of the registered voters.
Some of the La Mesa candidates were spending the morning amid the rush hour traffic waving signs and eliciting horn honks from their supporters.
City Councilman Mark Arapostathis, now a mayoral candidate, shuttled between busy Spring Street and Fletcher Parkway intersections where his supporters were covering both sides of traffic flow. Mayor Art Madrid didn't take to the streets himself today, though other politicians, including council candidate Bill Baber, did hit the streets.
Kathleen Hedberg, a candidate for the Helix Water District board, worked the corner of Spring and the 94 east entrance ramp.

I hate that my home address is in an unincorporated area of La Mesa, therefore I can't vote for Dr A., Bill Baber & Guy McWhirter & Term Limits!
