Oh! can you see....

Voting 2.0: In this critical election cycle, I've been duly surprised that some of you either don't know, want to know or haven't taken the time to find out where you will be casting your ballot this May 20 or the November general election. Shame on you! However, it is our mission to offer not only infotainment but, important empowerment information to the the GLBTQ community and beyond. Early voting is coming to an end tomorrow!! So, here's the listing (one more time) where you may participate. Go now, Early Vote for the candidates of your choice! Meanwhile, get your self fully prepared to vote this November. We will keep the polling information hot off the presses.

501 W Markham St., Little Rock
Early Voting at the Pulaski County Courthouse has moved across Broadway Street in Little Rock to the Jeffrey Hawkins Meeting Room in the old Bale Chevrolet Building . The Courthouse facility has been struggling to accommodate the needs of Early Voting for some time and with the ever expanding popularity of Early Voting a change of venue was needed. Early Voting is now conducted next door to the Election Commission office in a secure and comfortable environment that provides the opportunity for voters to more easily and quickly navigate the election process. The new facility houses more voting machines, more poll workers, more space and added security.& nbsp; Early voting times at this location are as follows:
Monday, May 5-Friday, May 9th: 8 a.m. – 6: p.m.
Saturday, May 10th: 10 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Monday, May 12th – Friday, May 16th: 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

ECO & US: During our salute to Earth Day earlier this month, I urged readers to send us comments on our cell phone recycling project. To my chargrin, I have to report that what I've heard is nothing more than crickets chirping. Yesireee, Nana, Zero, Silence better known as nothing. I guess most are so involved with talking on their PDA's or phones that they didn't have time to read our post or find it interesting enough to speak. So, O.K., here we go again, if you have a dead cell phone or phones, etc. that you would like to donate to our cause, let us know. Hit us up at our comment box or e-mail us at
