In less than a week, voters will go to the polls to cast ballots in the fall General Election.
The day for the general election is always the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. This year, the date is Nov. 7.
Voter turnout for elections when there are presidential candidates are poor enough; in what are called off-year elections, turnout is often dismal.
This year, there are so many interesting local races and issues that it’s more important than ever to go to the polls.
With months of conflict between Archbold Village Council and the German Township Trustees, there is an impetus for a larger-than-average turnout.
With three seats on council up for grabs and five candidates running, and with two seats on the German Township Trustee up for election with four candidates running, there are more choices on the ballot than there have been in the past.
Add contested races on the Archbold and Pettisville school boards and Clinton Township Trustees, along with local and state issues, and there are certainly important choices to be made.
Vote with your heart. Vote with your head. Vote with your pocketbook. Vote with your convictions. However you choose, get out and vote.
This is your chance to be heard.
