Letter: Residents should get out and vote

To the editor,

The American Legion Post 17, Naugatuck, encourages everyone who is eligible to remember to vote this coming Election Day, Nov. 8, 2016.

Voting is your right and duty as a citizen of this great country and state. Many lives have been sacrificed to protect this right. Please do not ignore your responsibility by not voting.

Besides individuals running for state and national offices, there are other issues which affect the community in which you live and certainly, you want to have a voice in how your tax dollars are spent. Your voice, your vote.

Let’s make the turnout of voters this year historical; largest number of voters ever in the history of our town, state, and nation. Please vote.

Ron Fischer
