Marshall County: It’s your turn to decide

Candidate forums, local and national debates, numerous articles, letters to the editor, yard signs, newspaper, TV, radio ads and a great deal of attention.

With nine days left until Election Day, this long campaign season is thankfully winding down.

Now it’s time for Marshall County voters to have the last word in this year’s general election.

If you haven’t already cast an absentee ballot, you have until Monday, Nov. 7 to do so at the courthouse. Or you can go to your polling location from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8 and make a difference in our future.

If you know someone who is unable to make it to the polls themselves, give them a ride or make arrangements to get them there safely.

Knock on your neighbor’s door and ask if he/she has voted. If they haven’t, take them to the polls and then out for supper.

Do whatever it takes to get your friends and family out to the different polling locations throughout the county.

The decision we make at the polls will have a direct impact on our lives for years to come.

Whether it’s the presidential race, Congress, sending local legislators to Des Moines or casting a vote for those who can help shape the future in Marshall County – ultimately the choice is ours to make.

Don’t let your future be dictated by a few. Every eligible voter has a say as to who they want to lead our country. Who do you want making those decisions? Who will best represent Marshall County’s viewpoints in Washington and Des Moines? Whose priority is his/her constituents’ concerns? Who will make us safer?

It’s up to every one of us to make those choices.

We’ll see you at the polls!
