Please take the time to stop and cast your vote. As a democratic society, we often take voting for granted but it truly is a privilege. Remember, if you don’t vote, you forfeit the right to complain!

I challenge you to resist listening or watching any media until you have cast your vote. The media is careless and irresponsible when it comes to reporting the truth. How many elections have been determined by the media and the way they presented an election and predicted winners? In the recent past, we have had several elections that may have had different results if the media had not been negligent in their efforts to “report” the election results. To declare a winner before the voters in the central and west coast areas have even cast their vote is wrong. People hear the results and don’t even bother to vote as the media declares premature winners. I urge you to turn off all media and cast your vote based on your own opinions of the candidates and their plans for our future. There will be plenty of time to listen to the voting results after you have cast your vote.

I’d also like to request that you pray for whoever wins the election. Regardless of who becomes our next president, they have quite a challenge ahead of them and will need all of the help and support that they can get!

Now I’ll get off my soapbox and head to the polls!
