Voter turnout is nearly at 10%.
Imagine that you and nine of your friends are trying to choose where to go out to eat on a lovely spring evening, but only one of you will make the decision for everyone else.
If you don’t think that sounds fair, then why would you let 10% of the registered voters choose your representatives, your judges, and your school board members? Or decide if your city will enact a sales tax?
Surely, these are more important issues than whether you eat pizza or sushi.
Monday is the last day of early voting and Tuesday is Election Day. Check our website to see your sample ballot and voting locations, then tell all your friends that they still have time to take part in important decisions being made.

Hi! I think that Benton County Clerk's Office should clearly post online that bags/purses are not allowed inside the building when voters come to vote. It is very frustrating to walk over and learn that upon arrival.
