Welcome to Wiggins, Mississippi
MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT
With all this talk of voting you might ask why
you should bother to vote at all? Does your vote actually mean anything?
Many call voting a "sacred right," and it is one
of the most important parts of our political system, a part that goes back to
our earliest days as a nation.
When he left the Constitutional Convention in
1787, Ben Franklin is said to have told a local citizen that the founders had
given the nation a Republic, if we could keep it.
By that, Franklin meant that as Americans it is
our duty to keep up on what is going on politically, that we should arrive at
an informed, logical position about what political ideas we support, and
finally that we should be sure and vote our conscience on Election Day.
Many today complain about politicians not
listening to the public. Of course, if we do not bother to vote our voice will
not be heard by our elected officials in the first place. Our elected
representatives are guided by what we say particularly when we vote. And if we
don't vote we are telling our politicians that we don't care what they do.
EVERYONE GET OUT TO
