Make your voice heard and vote on Tuesday

What will you do on Tuesday?

Tuesday, Nov. 6, is election day in America and here in Pike County.

On that day, millions of Americans will head to the polls to cast their votes for the next president of the United States and in thousands of state and local races.

Here in Pike County, our ballots are no different. From the choice between incumbent President Barack Obama and his GOP challenger Mitt Romney to a contested race for Circuit Clerk, we have much a stake.

A dozen statewide amendments – addressing everything from protecting the Forever Wild program to approving local issues that require a statewide vote – along with several state offices are on the ballot.

And while the Electoral College – and with it swing states such as Ohio or Florida – ultimately will determine the outcome of the presidential race, our local and statewide candidates depend on us to speak our minds at the polls. These elections are an important time to weigh what is most important to you – from how state revenues are invested to what type of person you believe is best qualified to serve on the Pike County Commission or in the critically important Circuit Clerk’s office.

Please make your voices heard and cast your votes. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.
