Tuesday’s school vote effects everyone — so be sure to vote
There isn’t a more wrongheaded statement than, “If you don’t vote, you can’t complain.” The First Amendment firmly states you have a right to “complain,” whether you vote or not. What it doesn’t say is whether or not you’ll look silly in the process.
Voting is among our most fundamental and important rights in this country. Sadly, it is the one we seem to exercise the least. Especially when it comes time to vote in school elections.
Tuesday’s election will impact everyone, regardless of age, in Jasper County. Local school districts’ tax asking constitutes a large portion of your property taxes, which everyone pays — homeowners pay them directly, renters pay them indirectly through their rent.
