August 4th, voters will select their party nominees in primary elections across Mississippi. There are statewide races, regional races, and local races on the ballots.
Many in our electorate typically decide not to participate in the electoral process. Reasons for not voting are many: too busy, work schedule, don't know the candidates, it doesn't matter who wins-they are all the same, one vote doesn't matter.
But we believe there are reasons you should vote. Every votes does count. Some elections are decided by one vote. Those who are elected make decisions that affect us all.
Make time to vote election day. Your vote matters.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
