Today is the first day of early voting. I plan to do it today. I hope you will too.
Many people feel that voting is futile–that they will be out voted.
When citizens don’t vote the incumbents feel that they are free to do whatever they want, after all the citizens don’t care enough to have their voices heard. If more of us voted our elected officials would be more mindful of how the public feels and thus less harm would be done.
Whether you vote the way I will or you vote differently, the simple act of voting puts our elected officials on notice that they are being watched.
Please vote–else we won’t deserve better.
