Local Elections, Make Your Vote Count!
ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – We all get excited about national races, some people even go door to door pitching presidential candidates. But did you know our local leaders have a greater impact on our daily lives? So why is it that less than 15% of voters turn out for local races?
Take a look at the comments under any news report covering local economic issues and you’ll find a sea of comments one way or the other. So we do care, just not enough to vote. Actually, everyone does vote, the non-voting citizens are just handing off their voting power to their neighbors, but what if you don’t like your neighbor?
So you ask, “But what can I do? I’m just one person,” …you can vote.
So what do I do? First, be sure to register (TIME IS RUNNING OUT) see info below. Last Day to Register to Vote—July 3, 2018 until 4:30pm.
