Editorial: Voting is the first step of serving your community

Ivanhoe Sol

The right to vote is a privilege that some of our neighbors do not have. We urge every eligible voter to vote early, check your voter registration status, and to track your ballot once it is mailed. There is much at stake. Not only is this year a major presidential contest, Ivanhoe’s representation in state government, and many propositions are also on the ballot that will directly affect our lives.

This year, every voter can mail their ballots. However, Ivanhoe Memorial Hall will no longer serve as a polling site. If residents would like to hand-deliver their ballots, there are 19 total polling stations total in Tulare County this election cycle. Our team has identified the five nearest polling places located in nearby cities. This list includes: 

  • Farmersville Community Center 623 N. Avery Ave Farmersville, CA 93223
  • Exeter Memorial 324 N. Kaweah Avenue Exeter, CA 93221
  • Manuel Hernandez Community Center 247 W. Ferguson Avenue Visalia, CA 93291 
  • Visalia Library 200 W. Oak Avenue Visalia, CA 93291
  • Woodlake Memorial 355 N. Acacia Street Woodlake, CA 93286

There are many ways to have your voices heard. While we encourage every person to vote, we feel that voting alone is not enough. As we’ve discussed in our previous newsletters, many issues continue to exist in the community of Ivanhoe regardless of the election cycle. We urge and support community members wanting to the collective good of the community. To this end, we will continue to support the community with relevant and current news for your information needs.
