Be Sure To Vote This Tuesday
The greatest responsibility of every citizen in a democratic society is to vote to elect that society’s leaders, nationally and locally. On Election Day next Tuesday, the urgency is even more compelling than in previous elections because the candidates, President George W. Bush and United States Senator John Kerry, have presented such sharply divergent views that every eligible voter must find the time to get to the polls and register his or her preference as to who should lead the country for the next four years.
The election four years ago showed clearly that every vote
does count, and indications are that the outcome this year will be as close as it was in 2000, so it behooves everyone to cast a ballot.
As usual, the polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., which is ample time for everyone to get to his or her polling place to exercise the basic function and sacred duty of every citizen.
