>Early voter

>I stopped by the fire station in Smyrna on Saturday and early voted for the upcoming election. At this point, there’s very little that would change my vote either way, though I do admit I had to wrestle with some of the issues and candidates on the ballot this time around.

From what I understand talking to the workers at early voting, I hit a good window. I didn’t have to wait more than five to ten minutes to vote, which earlier in the day, I understand there was a longer line. Hearing that encourages me a good deal.

I think it’s important to get out and vote. Of course, I think it’s important to understand the issues and the candidate’s stands and platforms before you get to the polls. Call me crazy that way. But I’m encouraged that it seems like a large group from my area is out and voting early. Hopefully that will continue and we’ll get a good turnout on election day. It just saddens me when you hear the stats that less than fifty percent of registered voters could be bothered to get out and vote.

Anyway, if you can early vote, I’d recommend it. Quick, simple and easy to do.

And no matter what–early or on election day, I hope you’ll get out and vote on the issues and the candidate of your choice.
