Letter to the editor:

Do your research before you vote

The Nov. 26 letter to the editor, “Before you vote, inform yourself,” was right on. When I was approaching voting age, the adults in the family sat me down and, like all adults do, proceeded to give all kinds of instruction. The one thing that has stayed with me all these years is this: research, research, research.

If you’re looking at incumbents, check their voting record. Did they vote for or against what’s important to you? Did they vote only along party lines?

If candidates are newcomers to politics, find out about their business and personal life; this will tell you volumes.

Most of all, attend meetings and, if possible, get involved. Only you should make the decision regarding the policies and person you are voting for.
