Joe's Viewpoint: Voting Rights

Joe Sciortino Joe Sciortino
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

I have spoken before about our voting rights and how important it is for each of us to exercise this right. This is your chance to express your individual choice for those who make decisions that affect us all. Your next opportunity to vote is the primary election on August 4th And if you have not registered to vote, you need to get this done so your voice can be heard. The voter registration deadline for the August primary election is July 3rd so there is just under 3 weeks left for you to get registered for the next election. To get the best information on how and where you can register and more information on Mississippi elections visit the Mississippi Secretary of State's website at sos.ms.gov or just google Mississippi Secretary of State. It is simple to do and it does not cost anything, but is one of our most valuable rights as Americans. So don't forget and get registered to vote.

This is today's viewpoint.
