A Better Mid-South: Your vote does count

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

I had the chance to attend the DeSoto County School superintendent debate this week. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the large crowd that turned out for it.

I have long been concerned about the lack of participation in the political process. I think the reason we see this apathy toward voting is the feeling that our one small vote doesn't count.

That could not be further from the truth.

So many of our forefathers fought long and hard to give all of us the right to vote. 

Let's not squander this right.

We have multiple opportunities over the next year and a half to be involved.

Mississippi voters go to the polls on Tuesday. The Memphis Municipal election, which includes the Mayoral race, is coming up in October and, of course, we will elect a new President next year. 

Take this opportunity to register to vote. Be involved.
