Consider needs of voters

April 27, 2012 — The editor:

To vote or not to vote, that is the question. Our rights are slowly, maybe quickly, taken from us. Our leaders, elected officials and special groups are again telling us what to do. These people are elected to their high-paying, high-profile and controllable offices to represent us the people. This government was made by the people and for the people as set forth in the constitution. Why are we the people letting this happen to us? It’s time to stand up and testify!

Moving the voting precincts out of our communities was the next step. As you know by now, I’m against this action. Voting is one of our rights. How would these people hold office if not for us voting? Why should we go to them? Let them come to us. We as voters and taxpayers are paying the bill. Moving the voting precincts to the Conference Center I think was a bad decision. With the high price of gasoline, the elderly, who have walked this line many times and the loss to our communities. We have lost our post offices, schools, businesses, jobs and now voting precincts. Have our elected officials thought of themselves again and not us the voter?

The county should have to put the voting precincts back in each and every precinct as long as there are people voting. Take a stand for your right to vote. This is one of the final and last rights that we have left. Ask for your voting precincts back in their rightful place.
