Iowans will be caucusing in what’s expected to be record numbers; upwards of 200,000 are expected to make their presidential nominee preference known.
Casting a vote and making your voice heard is what makes up America. It’s not just during election cycles – we do it all the time.
Did you buy a can of beans for 49 cents or three for a dollar? When you made your choice, you cast your vote with your pocketbook.
Did you buy a domestic built auto or a foreign built one? Again, you cast a vote.
What are you watching on TV tonight? Again, you cast a vote.
You can obviously cast a vote for a lot of different reasons. Political, economic, personal preference – just about anything.
Do you ever think about casting a vote for safety?
If you call 811 before you dig, that’s exactly what you’re doing. A single call to 811 gets underground utilities located prior to excavation, so you know what’s below. To quote another old ad campaign – the best surprise is NO surprise.
Casting your vote for safety by calling 811 is one of the smartest things you can do to protect your state’s underground infrastructure and more importantly, yourself.
So, get out there and VOTE! You don’t need a voter ID card, you don’t even have to drive anywhere special. You can vote for 811 from your smart phone, from your laptop, from just about anywhere, and you can do it around the clock, every day of the year.
Now, for those of you keeping up – I promised to update my weight loss program right here every week. I started at 219 pounds on January 4. Hmm. Today’s weight is 213.4. Last week was 212.8. Must be that extra day we’re getting this month….
Until next week, safe digging!
