HERALD'S OPINION: Let your voice be heard


The Herald's Opinion

CLINTON — Hey, American voter. Yes, you. You have an important job to do.

OK, really, you’d have to be living under a rock to not know that tomorrow is Election Day, when we will choose who will be our next president and will represent us at the federal, state and local levels.

Many of you have already cast your ballot as part of the early voting process. In fact, Iowa voters have come out in droves to do so already. Kudos to you.

Now for the rest of you: Don’t forget to head to the polls tomorrow.

We at the Herald aren’t going to tell you how to vote. There are plenty of ads and news shows that have been telling you for whom to cast your ballot. And of course there have been debates, news stories and local forums.

The Herald did publish a special section at the end of October to tell you more about who is seeking election and why they want to represent you.

It is now up to you to choose. Make sure you exercise that right.
