Letter to the Editor: Voting is important!

To the Editor:

It’s time to make our voices heard on June 2. How fortunate we are in these unpredictable, frightening, isolating times to still be able to vote safely!

All we need to do is call the Allamakee County Auditor’s Office at 563-568-3522 by May 22 and request an application for an absentee ballot. It will come by mail relatively quickly. It gives us the power to help choose candidates for U.S. Senator, Iowa State Representative and Allamakee County Supervisor, among others. It must be returned by mail or hand-delivered to the courthouse by June 1.

If you choose to vote absentee in person, or at the polls on the the actual voting day (June 2), the Auditor’s Office will give you instructions.

This election process is good practice for the November election, when we may still be encouraged to vote by absentee ballot. Please use your right as a citizen 18 years or older, and vote! Future generations depend on the thoughtful, informed decisions we make now.
