With freedom comes responsibility. As Americans, we enjoy many hard-fought freedoms that admirably set us apart from other world nations, including the privilege to vote. We at SKIL are passionate about voting. We are thankful that, today in our country, citizens have the right to cast voting ballots for the government candidates of their choice. We should not take this right lightly, for it was not granted to us lightly.
It is your responsibility to learn about the values of the candidates and where they stand on the issues that are important to you. Voting during these times may present new challenges, so get prepared. Some counties have sent out applications for absentee ballots but if you didn’t get one, call your county clerk’s office and request one. You can also inquire about the availability of voting in person at the polls, depending upon current government restrictions.
If you have not registered to vote, do so! If you have moved, you will need to re-register. Please take all of the steps to assure that you can do your part, and vote! In the words of the father of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Justin Dart: “Vote as if your life depended on it…because it does.”
If we can help you in any part of the voting process, please do not hesitate to call us at SKIL, Monday-Friday, 8-5 p.m., at: 1-800-688-5616 or 620-421-5502.
Mark your calendar: August 4th is the primary election and November 3rd is the general election. VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
