Election Day 2016

A nation for the people, BY the people - if you vote!

 

by John Vogt - November 8, 2016

The preamble of our constitution reads:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

A government for the people and by the people, in a nation where people are free. Today is a very important day. Today, we exercise our right to vote to select those who will govern us. The joys of freedom that we experience here came with a price. Let us not forget the many who have given their lives to make it happen. We thank God for those who have fought and died to protect our freedom. Our system was designed to work through the participation of our citizens. It requires you to be a part of setting our course for the future. No matter how you choose to vote today – democrat, republican, independent or a mixed ballot. It’s critically important that you vote.

Our next President will potentially appoint 2 or 3 Supreme Court justices and hundreds of lower court appointments. These actions alone will set the course for our country for the next 30 to 40 years. This is a government for the people BY the people – but it’s only BY the people when we exercise our right to vote. Please take time today to participate by casting your VOTE.

Whether it’s your first time voting or your 10th – there are some things you need to know and remember when you go to the polls today. But first – where do you go?
If you live in Wellsboro, there are two polling locations based on your address. The first (in Ward 1) is the Wellsboro Community Center, (popularly known as the Senior Center), on 3 Queen Street. The second location is in Ward 2 – the Masonic Temple on 8 Kelsey Street.

You can find out which of the two (or other polling locations if you live outside of Wellsboro) through a great online tool provided by the Tioga County Voters Registration office. Click here to visit their website. Watch the video above for a tutorial on how to use the website.(From the Polling Locations page you can find an overall map of the locations AND directions on how to get to the polls. First, click on “Map To Your Polling Place.” Next, input your residence address and click “search.” Your polling location will appear and you will also be given the option to search directions if needed.)

The Voters Registration Office would like Union Township and Liberty Borough residents to know that polling locations have changed this year (and have been updated on the county map. If you have any questions, please contact Voters Registration.)

First time voters must show photo identification, and other voters are encouraged to have it on hand, but it is not required. The polls are open from 7:00am until 8:00pm tonight. Whether you’re still unsure or you’ve known for a while who you want to vote for, we encourage you to get out there and vote. Thank you, and may God bless the United States of America.
