VFW Auxiliary encourages everyone to vote

It is your voice, your right and your responsibility

GREENVILLE – The VFW Auxiliary to Post 7262 is encouraging everyone to take advantage of the privilege so many Americans have fought and died for – your right to vote. There are many reasons for you to exercise this right that is uniquely American. The basic one is because it gives you a say in what your government does in relation to making laws, regulations and spending your tax dollars.

Your community depends upon input from all residents about what is believed to be the right actions to be taken by government – that is why levies such as those on this November’s ballot are important for everyone’s opinion to be voiced through the ballot box.

Voting is how those in City Hall, the Court House, Congress and the White House are made responsible to each citizen. It is our chance to let them know how each of us feels about the job they are doing. To play liberally with the words of Plato, if you do not vote to decide who will rule you, you are likely to be ruled by fools.

Your vote does count! According to a 2001 study of state and federal elections in the United States between 1898 and 1992, "one of every 100,000 votes cast in U.S. elections, and one of every 15,000 votes cast in state elections, ‘mattered’ in the sense that they were cast for a candidate that officially tied or won by one vote.

Voting for Ohioans is very convenient. In addition to in-person voting on November 3 at your polling place, voters may vote by mail or do in-person early voting seven days a week at the Board of Elections located at 300 Garst Avenue, Greenville. 

Honor those who have served by voting in the November General Election to choose who you believe will best represent you.  Visit https://www.boe.ohio.gov/darke/ for all voting information in Darke County. The Board of Elections may be reached by calling 937-548-1835.
