I n just over a month voters will be taking to the polls for the
November General Election.
And while there are some pretty important elections national and statewide, there are several elections locally as well.
If you are a candidate, wouldn’t you like your constituents to know why they should vote for you?
Of course you would.
Would you also like for it to be free?
Even better, you’d say!
But there have been times when candidates haven’t taken advantage of this free service.
So, this is your OFFICIAL invitation to submit your 150 word spiel on why you should be the next (fill in the blank). Send in your photo, too. It is all free and will be published on October 15, just in time for Early Voting (October 20- Oct. 31). But you must get it in by Thursday, October 9.
Oh and voters – yes, you. Please get out and actually vote. It is so easy. You have 10 days to vote early. This is done at the Atascosa County Election Administrator’s office, 914 Main St. in Jourdanton.
If you are not registered, you have until Monday, October 6 to do so. As a candidate, it is your responsibility to inform the voters so they can make a decision.
As a registered voter, it is your responsibility to use your freedom to vote for whomever you wish.
The way I see it, the two go hand-in-hand.
Please be an active participant in the upcoming (actually ALL elections).
Candidates and voters – can’t have one without the other.
P.S. We will also accept paid advertising!
