June is shaping up to be a busy month: schools are ending and summer is upon us -- and so is the primary election! Early voting starts next Thursday, and we could use your help. Check out some opportunities to get involved below.
|Last Day to Register to Vote|
Tonight at 9 PM is the voter registration deadline. You must be registered with a political party to vote in this month's primary.
Eligible people can register to vote online
or at the Bloomsbury Community Center. Make sure you're registered and share this information with any new voters!
|Bike to Work Day|
Last Friday, May 30, Catonsville residents joined together to Bike to Work. The event was one of many taking place in the Baltimore Area.
The event was sponsored by Catonsville Rails to Trails and the Hub/C'Ville Bikes. Cyclists left the Frederick Road meet-up and biked to BWI, Towson, Relay Elementary, and many other locations.
Commuting by bike saves money, reduces pollution, and has great health benefits. Recognizing this, in 2011, Councilman Quirk helped start the Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee in Baltimore County. The committee's goal is to improve the safety of our roads for both cyclists and walkers. You can learn more about their work and upcoming meetings here
