The progressive non-slate slate (Rockne Cole Kingsley Botchway Royceann Porter) will be having a get out the vote rally at College Green Park then going over to the ICPL to vote. Saturday, 1 to 4.

Think Bicycles is hosting the last of the many Iowa City candidate forums Wednesday from 7-9 pm, also at the public library.

Campaign finance reports for city candidates are due Thursday, so by week's end we should get a nice picture of Who's Backing Who. The Coralville reports should be especially interesting.

Friday is the Alignment of the Payroll Planets. Several of Iowa City's larger employers -- the county, the city, ACT, and HyVee -- pay their employees every two weeks on a Friday and it happens to be the same Friday. The biggest by far employer, the University, pays its employees on the first of the month. About every 14 months or so, those paydays coincide, and everybody gets paid. The next one is May Day 2015.

And Saturday Iowa Democrats host the Jefferson Jackson Dinner in Des Moines with keynoter Sen. Chuck Schumer.
