Election 2008: Your Turn to Weigh In

Tuesday, November 4th, is the day we've all been waiting for — the day when all the political rhetoric, countless late-night jokes and endless attacks on personal integrity will finally come to an end.

 What we've had to endure leading up to this election is a necessary evil. Good things are worth fighting for, and our right to vote is one of the very best.Unfortunately, all too often we take voting for granted. We fail to reflect on the fact that exercising our right to vote — having a voice in our own government — is the very essence of democracy. That right has come at a high price. Millions of Americans have paid the ultimate sacrifice to give you that right. We owe it to them to use it. We owe it to our children and grandchildren. We owe it to the future of our sport and our natural resources to show up on Tuesday and decide the direction of our country, our state and our local communities.

Your vote is no less important than that of your neighbors, the CEO of your company or the President of the United States.Election Day is the one day when we are all truly equal.
