Some thoughts on voting
Voting time. The right to vote is also a privilege with an obligation. This is treasured by most in this country. We have the obligation to be good citizens.
Some of this might sound routine, but right around the corner is one of the most important of elections on Nov. 6. In that there are some new voters or others who have not voted in a while, I take the opportunity this very week to remind people of the upcoming election. The reason I do this right now is that our law requires a person to be registered to vote at least 30 days prior to the election. In this presidential election cycle, that makes the deadline to register to vote Oct. 9. Stated differently, if you, a friend or relative wants to have a say in the presidential election, there is just barely more than one week left to register. Maybe I should not have to share this, but I would like to think this is a way of contributing with this gentle reminder. As some friends of mine jokingly said the other day, vote early and often. You can’t do this without being on the rolls.
