Every year they were alive at election time I would hear my grandpa and my dad say “if you don’t vote, you have no right to complain.” To preserve my complaining privileges, I voted this morning. It took all of about 5 minutes.
In the 2010 election, Mississippi had one of the lowest percentages for voter turnout in the nation at just 37%. Think about that. Men and women have died and will continue to die protecting the democracy that is the United States of America. At any given time, there are people in harm’s way all across the world protecting your freedom here. One of the most important freedoms, if not the most important freedom is the right to vote. Go exercise it!
Chancellor Primeaux summed it up nicely:
If you voted already, thank you, fellow citizens.
If you haven’t voted, please get off of this bleeping computer and go vote right now.
If you don’t plan to vote, or, God forbid, you aren’t even registered, shame on you.
