Letter to the editor

Many have sacrificed for your right to vote

POSTED: August 19, 2012 8:00 a.m.

Forsyth County voters: I’m ashamed of you. I understand the current runoff election may only have about 10 percent of the voters participating, after a paltry 25 percent in the primary a couple of weeks ago. 

I would like to remind you folks that literally tens of thousands of men and women died for our precious freedom and privilege to vote. Many thousands also came home from fighting for us without arms, legs or eyes. If you are not registered, do it!

Be a man, be a lady, be an honorable citizen and vote. We should have nothing less than 90 percent-plus exercising the right and privilege to vote. Let us remain the “Lighthouse for the World.”
