It is important to vote in the Primary Election

citizens we have the privilege of being able to select our officials. This American right was not granted, but earned.

We have all heard or read stories about what it took to earn the right to vote. We must not forget. Many of our family members died and were beaten trying to earn the right to vote. (Watch the movie Selma if you don’t know about it)

Our forefathers went through so much to earn their right to vote; whether is was taking an oral test, being spreth.

Voting can be seen as an obligation, but it is something that we must do. We owe it to our forefathers who went through so much to earn their right to vote and to make our lives better.

If you don't vote, you have no right to complain about how your government is operated. But, voting gives you that right. Every registered voter should take advantage of this awesome right.

Several local races are on this year’s Primary ballot. The outcome of these races will have a direct effect on the decisions that are made in your city over the next few years. If you have not already voted via absentee ballot, please take a few minutes on August 7th to go to your local poll and VOTE.

It is not just important that you vote. You must impress upon your family members and friends to vote also. Make it a family event; talk about the candidates that are running to represent you; load up the car and go to the polls.
