Be sure to vote

Dear Viewpoint:

We have some very important elections coming up this November. I encourage all the citizens to exercise your constitutional right to vote. Voting is very important. It’s about your livelihood, your job. Politicians play a very import role and bringing jobs to the communities. It’s about our children — the school board are elected politicians which play an important part of our children’s lives. So we see how important your vote truly matters. So I encourage you all to go out and vote and take some one with you and encourage them to vote also.
