LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Tomorrow is an election day. Weekday elections can make it harder for some people to get to the polls, but when you think of countries where you may be risking your life to vote, or walking for miles to get to a voting location, it’s a little hard to complain about having to work voting into your day.
Depending on where you live, there may be more than you are aware of what is on your ballot. Constitutional amendments, tax renewals, state and local races, and of course the United States Congressional race. You can find explanations of the amendments, information about the races, and information about polling locations and times on kplctv.com. Being more prepared will not only help you make the choices that you want to make, but will also help you cut down the time it takes you when you get there.
Once again, KPLC has no agenda for, or against, any candidate for any office, nor any issue. We won’t try to tell how you should vote, but we do think it’s important to vote. Even if your voice is different than mine, you should make it heard. I hope you’ll join me in voting tomorrow, no matter how you plan on voting.
