As citizens of this country we have more privilege’s than other country in the world. Thanks to our Founding Fathers and their Faith and Trust in God; we also say Thank You to all the veterans past and present. One of these privilege’s is the right to vote. When I turned 18 in 1960 I registered to vote, signed up for the draft, and enlisted in the U.S. Navy. I’ve voted in every election possible since with exception of a couple of primaries. To all of the citizens who don’t vote or are not registered to vote: You can do so now at the County Clerks office in the court house, prior to July 17th for the primary to be held Aug. 7th or by Oct 16th for the general election. Fill out a voter registration card with your party affiliation; you’ll need a valid picture ID or drivers license, social security card, and a current address. If you have moved recently you are required to re-register. It’s not only a privilege; it’s a right and duty as a citizen of the United States of America! Elected officials all the way from the PTA to the President depends on your vote. If you don’t vote then don’t complain about taxes or government. Encourage your friends and neighbors to register and to vote; and yes I am a candidate in the upcoming primary. Please Vote!
