WLOX Editorial: Registering to vote is important

If you want your say in how local state and federal governments are run, the best way is at the ballot box. If you are not registered to vote, maybe it's time you got registered.

To vote in the November 4th election for the U.S. Senate, the 4th District Congressional race and the Jackson County Sheriff's race, you must be registered by this Saturday. And if you register now, you will be good to go for whole array of statewide races next year.

Circuit Clerk's offices are open during regular business hours during the week and from 8 a.m. to noon this Saturday to accept your voter registration application.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
