Remember, next Tuesday, May 5, is an Election Day.

There is only one countywide issue, a renewal of a Children’s Services levy, but Crestwood, Aurora and Mogadore all have school issues to vote on, and Brimfield, Hiram, Ravenna, Streetsboro and Windham have local issues on the ballot.

Polls are open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.  Thirteen hours! You can make time to get to your polling place and exercise your right to vote.  If you don’t vote, nobody has to listen to your complaints about how things are being run.  Why should they?

And if you really want to have something to do with the way  “we, the people” get to put our two cents-worth in, contact the Portage County Board of Elections, they’re always looking for responsible individuals to serve at the polls.  Make it your salute to freedom and responsibility to step up and serve.
