I am continually saddened and surprised when I encounter someone who states that they have no intention of voting.
Some say that they have never voted and don’t see the point. I understand that there is some disillusionment and even apathy with some voters but it is foolish to give up this right, this responsibility, and this power we have as voting citizens.
Politicians make decisions, sign contracts, make laws, and spend our money. The least we should do is help decide which ones will get to do this.
I have such strong feelings about this issue that I have had signs made for my lawn that remind my neighbours and passing motorists to vote on Oct. 19.
It’s our right and our responsibility!
