Your vote makes a difference

North Dakotans will go to the polls on Election Day, Tuesday, June 14.

Election Day this month falls on Flag Day, a day to honor the U.S. flag. The day commemorates the adoption of the Stars and Stripes on June 14, 1777, as the official flag of the United States.

Voting on Flag Day is most appropriate.

Voting is one of the most important rights of American citizens and taking part in elections is one of the key freedoms of our lives.

If you are satisfied with a candidate or issue, or if you are not satisfied, this is your opportunity to cast your ballot.

Before voting you should make sure you are well versed in who the candidates and issues are. Be sure to thoroughly read candidates’ views on various topics and about any issues on the ballot.

In recent days, The Minot Daily News has been publishing information about candidates running for offices in the local election along with their responses to various questions. These stories are available in the newspaper as well as online. This information will give you a good opportunity to learn more in depth information about candidates and their views.

Many countries around the world do not have the same freedom that we do to exercise our rights to vote.

When you vote, your vote joins other voters in elections whether local or otherwise. Your vote will matter – it will make a difference — when it comes to election results.

We hope to see you at the polls.
