May Day

Today is May Day, the adopted high holiday of the Communist world, adopted from Beltane, the Gaelic Pagan mid-spring holiday, and counterpart to Samhain aka Halloween. Today is often associated with fertility, a sensible thing for a holiday that falls squarely in prom season.

In tax land, we place greater emphasis on Beltane eve, when by secular fiat, small businesses across the land file their quarterly payroll tax returns. In the Colorado branch of the tax cult, we like to fire up for the midnight bonfires with the magic numbers 941 and 1094.

Today is also the last day to vote in Denver's city elections. Drop off your ballot downtown by 7 p.m. at the following places:

The Denver Election Commission located at 303 W. Colfax Ave. . . .
Athmar Recreation Center, 2680 W. Mexico Ave.
Barnum Recreation Center, 360 Hooker St.
District 3 Police Station, 1625 S. University Blvd.
Eisenhower Recreation Center, 4300 E. Dartmouth Ave.
Harvey Park Recreation Center, 2120 S. Tennyson St.
Montbello Recreation Center, 15555 E. 53rd Ave.
Montclair Recreation Center, 729 Ulster Way

Scheitler Recreation Center, 5031 W. 46th Ave.
Tattered Cover Bookstore, 1628 16th St.
Tattered Cover Bookstore, 2626 E. Colfax Ave.
Wellington Webb Municipal Office Building, 201 W. Colfax Ave.

On Election Day, May 1, all locations will receive ballots from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., including Election Commission headquarters curbside drop-off on Court Place between Colfax Ave. and 14th St.

Please note: Ballots must be received by 7pm, May 1, 2007. Any ballots received after this date and time will not be counted regardless of postmark.

Vote well.

This isn't a comment on this post so much as a heads-up on a previous comment at Denver Politics. (I couldn't find any way to contact you directly through the site.)

I've updated the posting at http://denverpolitics.blogspot.com/2007/04/who-is-voting.html with a chart and updates to your interesting ideas about organization in various parts of the district.
