“Let’s vote on it!”

This is a phrase that is used many times to make a decision: What movie shall we see? What will we have for dinner? Where shall we go on vacation? These words are very important.

The right to vote is precious, a privilege of those who have it. Whether the decision of the majority is shown by raised hands, a voice count of “ayes,” by marking a piece of paper, or voting on a computer screen, voting has been a power by which people can alter almost anything in their lives.

Voting is a privilege, not a right. A privilege can be taken away. If you are imprisoned, you cannot vote. In earlier times, only people of the white upper male class were allowed to vote.

It is a privilege that others give their lives so that we can enjoy. In the past, our ancestors had the decisions made for them.

After the filing deadline passed last Saturday, 18 candidates had filed for office in the Grantsville municipal election. The election of mayor, recorder and five council seats will be held Tuesday, June 7.

This is the election for officials of the county seat of Calhoun County. It is the election for the future of Grantsville, and will affect our children’s future.

We have a choice of a variety of ages and occupations. You have several months to study the candidates, their qualifications, and their goals. Prepare yourselves to vote and then . . .

Don’t just sit there and complain about nothing being done.
