Editorial- Don’t forget: It’s the season for voting

We can tell that it’s time for voting. Political signs are all over the place, in yards and even as people stop at stop signs and lights. We hear the political ads on TV and radio. We see the ads in newspapers. We even see the candidates in our churches, hoping to influence voters there. It’s voting season.

We know the primaries are in play, but it’s voting season all the same. Voters will choose their public officials in some races now, with no waiting for the November General Election to decide who will get the position.

Also, people are entreating people to go out and vote. North Carolina still allows early voting, so people can vote now before the Tuesday, May 8 primary. That’s a good way to get that one little thing to do out of the way before life gets so busy that it floats out of the mind.

May 8 is next week. On Wednesday, May 9, it will all be over.

Here again is voting information for early voting in Forsyth County for the rest of the week:

Early voting is at the Forsyth County Board of Elections, 201 N. Chestnut St, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. through Friday, May 4, and will include same-day voter registration. Four satellite sites are open through Friday, May 4, from 10 a.m.-6:30 p.m. at the Southside, Lewisville and Rural Hall libraries and VFW Post 5352 in Kernersville. Saturday, May 5, will be the last day of early voting as all five sites will be open from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Sample ballots can found on the Forsyth County Board of Elections’ website at under “Election Info.”

And again, don’t forget to vote. Your future and the future of your loved ones depend on it.
