Election Day, November 8th is only weeks away. This is one of the most important days of the year in America. A day in which every red-blooded American, who concerned about the future of our great country, states their opinions in good ol’ democratic fashion. Although, for folks in the F-M area, November weather can hinder many senior citizens from being able to physically reach the polls.
As we well know, Fargo weather tends to be unpredictable and frigid as we inch closer into the heart of winter. Luckily there is an alternate option, if you or your loved-one are physically unable to make it to the polls. Absentee voting ensures that absolutely everybody has the opportunity to allow their voice to be heard. God Bless America!
