Register to vote; then go vote!
Regardless of your political persuasion or affiliation, don’t sit on the sidelines of one of the most meaningful mid-term elections in a generation because you’re not registered to vote.
With the rancor amongst the Republican and Democratic parties these days, the outcome of the mid-terms on Tuesday, Nov. 6 will likely define the direction of our country for years to come.
Friday marks the final day for in-person voter registration in Chase County and in Nebraska. If you are not yet registered, County Clerk Debra Clark will keep her office open at the courthouse until 6 p.m. on Friday. So, when you get off work at 5 p.m., you still have time to go the courthouse and register.
Even if you are a registered voter in Chase County but have changed your name or even your address, these changes must also be registered by the deadline.
The right to vote represents one of the most important inalienable rights we possess because we live in a free, democratic republic.
It stands right along side with this country’s First Amendment that gives us freedom of speech, religion, press, the right to assemble and the right to redress our government.
