Guest Column
My Opinion About Voting

Paulette Ballard
Guest Columnist

I have been asked by several people if I have voted yet. Further comments were “be sure to vote because your vote counts.”

Does it really?

My husband and I voted yesterday and I can only hope our selections were the correct ones.

I believe there should be some changes made in the voting system. Using the personal votes should be what is counted, not the number of electoral votes given to each state. Using the personal votes would mean my vote really counts.

I don’t usually discuss politics because I don’t really know enough about it, but this has been a subject that I have felt strongly about for years.

As of late, there has been some discussion about doing away with the electoral college, and I feel that is an issue that should be further explored.

The bottom line is the voters should be allowed to make the decision.
