Consider This: If you don't vote, your voice won't be heard!

Next Tuesday is Primary Election Day!

Depending on whether you vote in the Democratic or Republican Primary there is a judgeship, state rep nominations, county judge and several precinct races to be decided.

I'm not going to try and convince you it is important to vote. If you don't think it is, then this commentary isn't for you.

I have some definite opinions about who'd I'd like to see win.

If you don't vote, you don't have a voice in who will be setting your taxes or, if you end up in justice court, who will be setting your fine.

If you don't vote, your voice won't be heard.

Consider one should have to beg any American to vote.

But if you believe, like I do, that voting is our sacred privilege as citizens, then I know you will join me at the polls.

And then tune in to KCBD NewsChannel 11 for the most up to date election results as they are counted throughout the evening next Tuesday.
