Citizens of New Albany can participate in their state and local government. This process insures that power will always remain where it belongs - with the people.

The most important right citizens have is the right to vote. By voting, the people have a voice in state and local government. The people decide who will represent them in government.

Before voting in an, election, each citizen should be well informed about the issues and candidates.

Why We Should Vote

* To speak your mind:

Your vote is your choice. It tells the candidates and elected officials how you feel about important issues.

* To make them listen:

Your vote is your voice, too. When we turn out to vote, you can bet that the politicians know it - and you can be sure, when we all crank up that voice, they'll pay attention to what we say.

* For our community:

Do you ever wonder why one certain area seems to get it all? One big reason is voting. When we vote, we get results.

* For our children:

Our children can't vote-so we have to do it for them. That's how we make our views known about safety, schools, borrowing, debt, and the environment and other issues that will affect our childrens future in Floyd County.

* To control our future:

Elected officials make decisions that affect our daily lives. The individuals we vote for will make decisions about our quality of life.

* To stop something:

Voting let's you stop complaining about things going on in our community. It puts you the voter in the driver's seat instead of under the bus!

* To win:
In every election year, some races are decided by just a handful of votes. Those who vote demand respect. When we vote, we win.

The right of the people to vote is invaluable in the creation of local and state government that is bound to the will of "ALL" the people.

Freedom Of Speech would like to say:
We are urging each of you to take the time to do your part and
