Exercise your right

Published 12:00 am Saturday, November 4, 2006

Tuesday, Nov. 7, is the big day.

Time to go to the polls. Much time, preparation and county, state, and political funds have been invested into the upcoming day that will shape our future.

Having the right to vote is not something that should be taken lightly &045;especially with Alabama’s history.

Just to possess the right is not good enough. That right must be exercised.

What good would a sandwich be a starving person if it was not eaten? What right would that person have to complain of his situation when he holds in his hands the solution to what ails him?

Whether or not the sandwich be what he desires, it’s up to the individual as to what his future will hold.

That man is Democracy and the sandwich is his vote. Voting is what keeps Democracy alive and well.

Whether your vote be for the popular party or the underdog, it’s your duty to exercise it.

Every vote counts.

One vote alone may not seem like much, but it’s the count that matters &045;the lump sum.

This year, the Dallas County was awarded funds to purchase new voting machines for the visually impaired and physically challenged.

It’s more of a challenge for those voters to make it to the polls than the average person, but they’re making it, otherwise, the county would not have recognized that the machines were needed.

What will be your choice on Tuesday?

Exercising your Democratic right or holding on to that right and letting it die within your hands?

Polls are open from from 7 a.m. to 7p.m.

Hope to see you there.
