Breaking News

Actions matter Tuesday, and there's no excuse not to vote
space
We admit it. Even we self-professed news junkies have had it with this election. The constant barrage of negative and misleading television advertisements, complete with unflattering video and photos, have caused a massive headache, and not of the ice cream variety. Wednesday can't come soon enough.

It would be easy to turn offâ€and go aheadâ€but don't tune out.

Voting is a sacred honor we often take for granted. Witness the lengths people went to recently to purchase a $1 billion lottery ticket, with about the same odds of winning, but who will say Tuesday they can't be bothered to stop by a polling spot on the way home from work. Whose the real winner in that situation?

We would never presume to tell our readers how to cast their ballots. We have too much respect for the intelligence of those who read the newspaper.

Instead, we have shared information fairly, accurately and without bias. We have published letters to the editor, including well-crafted and thoughtful missives from folks such as Terry Brand and Phil Valitchka, and now, we leave the decision with our readers.

Political pundits of all persuasion has postulated that this is among the most important elections of this generation. And they are right, with control of the House of Representatives and Senate hanging in the balance. It's also become an unofficial referendum on President Donald Trump, who has proclaimed to supporters in recent rallies that “you're really voting for me.”

Words, character, morals, political convictions: All of these things matter.

But most of all, actions matter.

Get out and vote.
