Election day is fast approaching! On Tuesday, November 6th, YOU have a voice.

The biggest race is the Presidential election between President Barack Obama (D) and Republican Candidate Mitt Romney. It's a tight one according to all the polls, and it should make for a very exciting election night when the results come rolling in! We'll have full coverage here on KTVB.

But, another hot button issue getting a lot of attention here in Idaho is Students Come First Education Reform. Proposition 1, 2 and 3 are on the ballot this November. You can either vote to keep the reform in place, or to repeal the legislation. Many of you have strong opinions about this one, and it will be interesting to see what happens here too.

These are the questions you'll be asked about Props 1, 2, and 3 on the ballot:

Proposition 1: Referendum to approve or reject legislation limiting negotiated agreements between teachers and local school boards and ending the practice of issuing renewable contracts.

Shall the legislation limiting negotiated agreements between teachers and local school boards and ending the practice of issuing renewable contracts be approved? YES OR NO?

Proposition 2: Referendum to approve or reject legislation providing teacher performance pay based on state-mandated test scores, student performance, hard-to-fill positions and leadership.

Shall the legislation providing teacher performance pay based on state-mandated test scores, student performance, hard-to-fill positions and leadership be approved? YES OR NO?

Proposition 3: Referendum to approve or reject legislation amending school district funding, requiring provision of computing devices and online courses for high school graduation.

Shall the legislation amending school district funding, requiring provision of computing devices and online courses for high school graduation be approved? YES OR NO?

You can pre-register by October 12th, or you can register at your polling location on November 6th. Just bring your ID, and proof of your address. A utility bill with your name and address on it works best!
