Regardless of who wins the presidential race on Nov. 4, history will be made. The U.S. will welcome either its first black president or first female vice president.
Wouldn't you like to say you had a hand in making history?
For those who haven't yet registered to vote, there is just one week left in which to do so. The deadline is Monday, Oct. 6. If you're registering at the Taylor County Clerk's office, you must do so before 4:30 p.m. Registration cards that are mailed in must be postmarked by Oct. 6.
To register to vote, one simply has to fill out an application and be at least 18 years old before Election Day on Nov. 4.
At 17,043, more Taylor Countians are now registered to vote than ever before, according to County Clerk Mark Carney. Why not be one of them?
Of course, the presidential race isn't the only thing on the ballot.
Locally, voters will consider races for City Council, Taylor County School Board, Campbellsville Independent School Board, Soil and Water Conservation Board and Fourth District magistrate. State and U.S. Representative races round out the ballot.
With the state of today's economy - and the price of gasoline is only a drop in the bucket - those we elect to public office will be making some important decisions.
Isn't it up to all of us to make sure we elect the right people?
