Oct. 23, 2012 — The Nov. 6 election is only two weeks away, and voters will elect a number of public officials and approve or reject a number of initiatives on the ballot.
Calling each election the most important in history may be considered a bit of hyperbole and even a cliché, but in each and every election the voters make decisions that have far-reaching consequences for years to come. This upcoming election is no exception.
Local residents who are registered to vote have received information in the mail regarding the candidates and the issues. The newspaper has offered candidate statements, and a local radio station and other groups have hosted candidate debates or forums.
For those who vote at polling places, the day of decision is near. For those who cast a vote-by-mail ballot, the day of decision may be at hand.
The newspaper does not endorse candidates or issues, but we hope voters will take the time to inform themselves about the candidates and the issues and ultimately make an informed choice when casting their ballots.
Every vote counts, and voting is an important obligation of citizenship. Voters who have taken the time to review the election materials and learn about the candidates and the issues can make an informed choice that will better serve our country, state, county and city today and in the future.
