That’s really the crux of this whole diatribe. Your vote keeps politicians honest and working for you (and they are often very well compensated, we should add), and it’s simply stunning so few people are willing to take five minutes to exercise that control.
Every election cycle, and especially during local contests, we endeavor to bring our readers the information they need. This year, we’ve partnered with the Albany County and Saratoga County Leagues of Women Voters to bring our readers voters guides, and included one in the latest edition of the Schenectady County Spotlight, as well. We’ve also sponsored candidate debates all over the area, and covered them in our pages and on spotlightnews.com.
If you’re one of the unregistered residents of this county, it’s too late for this go around, but registering is easy. Simply visit online or call your board of elections and you can get them whole thing done by mail.
To those who are signed up: Go out there and be heard.
