Even though it has officially been spring for eleven days, these are the first few days in Northern Indiana that it truly feels like spring time. Days are getting longer, the sun is shining brighter, temperatures are finally getting up into the 70’s and most importantly, election season is right on the other side of a long weekend.
Monday, April 5th brings to us Dyngus Day, which is a holiday heavily celebrated in South Bend, Indiana that kicks off the coming political season. Dyngus Day occurs the Monday following Easter Sunday and is celebrated in largely Polish and Christian based cultures.
Here at Faulkner Strategies we are going to be holding our own celebration by hosting our 2nd Annual Dyngus Day Breakfast complete with all you can eat pancakes, delicious toppings, and traditional Polish sausage. We will also be having a special guest in attendance, Congressional Candidate Jackie Walorski, will be joining us for breakfast. Plates will only be $20 a person and all proceeds will benefit Mrs. Walorski’s campaign. Follow us throughout the day using the #Dyngus hashtag. Feel free to bring any friends and family to the event. We would love to see you here!
Monday is a very big day around the area as it also marks the first day of early voting in Indiana, and the deadline to register or update your voter registration for the upcoming May 4th, primary election.
Indiana residents are eligible to vote in the primary if they
· Will be at least 18 years of age at the next General Election on November 2, 2010,
· Are a citizen of the United States and a resident of Indiana,
· Are not currently in prison after being convicted of a crime, and
· Will have lived in the precinct where they plan to vote for at least 30 days prior to the election.
Take the time to make sure you are updated and registered for the upcoming election season.
