Editorial: "Get Out and Vote"

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - If you are satisfied with current leadership and if you believe four more years are best for our country, then you have probably already made up your mind.

If, on the other hand, you feel a change is necessary to assure the best future for our country, then perhaps you too have already made up your mind.

According to the U.S. Census in 2008, during the last Presidential election year, approximately 146 million out of 225 million U.S. citizens of voting age were registered to vote – only 65%.  Even more concerning, the percentage of registered voters that actually voted in 2008 was only 58%.

You can't influence the outcome unless you go the polls and vote.  You can't complain about the decisions being made if you don't participate in the process to elect the leaders.

With only weeks to Election Day, it's now decision time.  Think about it...Decide…Register...Go Vote. Our country depends upon it.
