Sacrifices for citizenship
Last updated 10/28/2020 at 5:26pm
Many people, veterans and families have made serious, meaningful and permanent sacrifices for their country. The least we can do is vote and there are record numbers of people voting this year.
True or false, because of the many issues we've heard about across the country with ballots and voter fraud, many people are still expected to stand in line and vote in person. This is despite there being fewer polling places locally, so the lines may be quite long.
My mom recently considered her health and the fact that she is unable to stand for a long time in line, but she wants to make sure her vote is counted, so she purchased a walker – just so she could stand in line for as long as she needs to and vote.
Whether you consider voting in person important or not, I'm thankful for a mom who believes fulfilling her civic responsibility is more important than convenience or comfort.
