YOUR TEXAS AGRICULTURE MINUTE
My vote is my voice
By Gene Hall
I hear it all the time. People think their legislators in Austin and Washington, D.C. don’t hear what they have to say. They think they have no say in the political process and how things are run in our nation.
While we can’t control everything that happens in our capitols, we do have the power to evoke change. It comes when we take the few minutes out of our busy day to cast our ballots for the people we think will best lead us into the future.
Good government is no accident. We vote by choice.
And there’s no better time than the present. Early voting for the November General Election is underway.
Over the next few weeks, our actions will help decide who sits in the governor’s seat, who represents us and more. We can’t simply leave the selection of these leaders up to chance.
Our votes are our voice.
Let’s use them.
