With the local election underway this week, the number one event that you need to attend is to go vote. Locations are open at the Civic Center and the county elections office. It takes 5 minutes and there’s no excuse not to be involved in the closing of our cities leaders. This week they are open until 5pm. Check out the county site for more details on where and when to vote. We’ll bring you more election coverage as it unfolds. In other news, prepare yourselves this Friday for our FREE Outdoor Movie Night on the courthouse lawn featuring the Tim Burton classic, Edward Scissorhands. As always, tag your best 'grams with #WDDI to get featured on What We Did next Monday.
Also of note: The OC Burger at 508 S Elm (next to Bet The House BBQ) is now open and is giving away free beer to celebrate.
