Ginny Sherlock shares her choices for the AUG 30 Martin County Primaries (below). Last day to change party affiliation is THIS MONDAY, AUG 1. (Source:

IMPORTANT: To vote in the primary elections you must be registered as the same party of the race. Independents cannot vote in most primaries. Act NOW!, dedicated to stopping the damaging discharges into the St Lucie & Caloosahatchee estuaries and restoring the flow of clean freshwater to Florida Bay, and Virginia “Ginny” Sherlock urge voters who are not already registered Republicans to change party affiliation to Republican by August 1 to be allowed to vote in the District 1 and District 3 primary contests on August 30. Everyone can vote in District 5, regardless of party affiliation.

Sherlock, a former reporter and editor for The Associated Press who has been a lawyer for the past 25 years representing neighborhood associations and residents who are fighting to protect our environment, our Comprehensive Plan, and our quality of life in Martin County shares her thoughts on the upcoming August 30 primary election:

My choices for Martin County Commission are:

Anne Scott (District 3) and Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch (District 1) deserve your votes along with Donna Melzer (District 5) to save our rivers, continue to fight All Aboard Florida, and preserve the Martin County Difference.

My choices for other Martin County local offices are:

Scott King for School Superintendent
Ruth “Ski” Pietruszewski for Tax Collector
Larry Green for School Board
Beth Elaine Allen for Circuit Judge Group 1
Kiernan Patrick Moylan for Circuit Judge Group 6

And I will vote YES for Amendment No. 4 to exempt solar or renewable energy devices from ad valorem taxation.

You can request a ballot by mail from the Supervisor of Elections website at and find out about early voting dates and precinct locations.
