CONSIDER THIS: Local Elections: VOTE

Source: WLBT Source: WLBT

The local election window is open and candidates interested in representing their local communities are soliciting votes and support.

Even though the Presidential and Congressional races receive a ton of publicity, it’s the people who are elected mayor, alderman, supervisor and other local positions who have a significant impact on what happens in the communities we call home.

Consider This:

The people who take the time to vote is a small percentage of the people who are eligible to vote. Whether it is a feeling that their vote doesn’t matter, no confidence in the candidates or just plain apathy, it is an unfortunate reality. That needs to change.

The primary election is coming up in early May. Take the next few weeks to figure out who will best represent you and most importantly take the time to vote.
