I cannot stress enough the importance of everyone voting this election. On Sept. 7 at
the University of Illinois, former President Barack Obama made that point very clear.
“This November’s elections are more important than any I can remember in my lifetime.
… This is one of those pivotal moments when every one of us as citizens of the United
States need to determine just who it is that we are. … You need to vote because our
democracy depends on it.”
Let me restate that. Our democracy depends on it!
If you are registered to vote, you must exercise that precious right at your poll on Nov. 6.
If you can’t vote on Nov. 6, then consider voting in-person absentee, which is happening
now at your local registrar’s office. They are open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
They will also be open for in-person absentee voting this Saturday and next Saturday,
Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Once again, our democracy depends on you voting, and maybe even doing a bit more.
