Well, this is it. This is your chance to put your ballot where your mouth is. If you’ve ever complained about municipal government, it’s time to take action.
Election Day is today, and our collective future is in your hands.
Casting an uninformed vote can be worse than not voting at all, though. Anyone who has voted before surely knows the empty feeling of encountering a race they hadn’t heard about before at the ballot box. If you’re still unsure for whom to vote, take care to study our Kokomo Election Guide at www.kokomotribune.com. We hope this gives you some idea of what races are being contested, which candidates are running and where they stand on the issues that most impact your daily life.
