It’s nigh time to get registered to vote

By: 

Also quickly approaching is the Nov. 8 General Election where American voters will decide who the next president will be.

Are you registered to vote?

If not, then you will not be able to exercise your right to vote.

While we rarely endorse political candidates, we do endorse the right to vote. It is an important task that should be taken seriously.

If you have not registered to vote but would like to do so in order to vote in this election, you only have until Saturday, Oct. 8 to do so. The deadline to register is always 30 days before an election.

The Barnwell County Voter Registration and Elections Office will be open Oct. 8 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. so any unregistered Barnwell County resident can sign up to vote. We appreciate Naomi DeFrenn and her staff for working these extra hours in order to give residents one last opportunity to register.

We also encourage voters to be informed about the candidates and issues. Watch the debates. Check out their websites. Decide who best matches your goals, values and opinions.

See you at the polls.
