In the United States we have the privilege of being able to vote for people to serve us in politics. Not all countries offer this freedom. In some countries, the government monitors who votes and sometimes tamper with the voting results. We should take advantage of this freedom and choose who we want to represent us in political office. On Tuesday, September 14th, the polls will be open. We have to elect a new governor, a U.S. Senator, U.S. House of Representative members, Wisconsin State Senator, Wisconsin State Representatives, School Board Board members, and many other political officials. Take the time to vote. Choose the candidate that you feel will do the best job of representing you in political office. Be a good American citizen and use your privilege of being able to vote wisely.
