LETTER: Vote and make an impact

-A A +A

Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy.  
May 17 is our primary election day when Kentuckians will select candidates from their parties for offices such as governor, secretary of state, treasurer, agriculture commissioner and auditor.  Members of Spencer County Farm Bureau hope voters will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our soon-to-be state government leaders.
As Kentuckians, it is our responsibility to find out the ideas of each candidate.  And, as Spencer Countians, it is our responsibility to let the candidates know what issues are important to our community, and it’s easy to do.  Be involved and attend the functions candidates attend and tell them what is important and ask them about their position on key issues.  Campaigns select issues based on what voters tell them are important.
Your involvement will make a difference in the process.  First, you must bring your issues to the front of the debate.  Then, hold the candidates accountable by going to vote.  
Make an impact by going out to vote and support your community in the May 17 primary election.
