Vote in the primary, general election to come in November

MBJ Editorial

Voting is a responsibility that far too many Mississippians neglect. And that’s a shame.

Good citizenship takes a range of forms, but in our representative democracy, voting is the bare minimum. Picking up trash, coaching kids, volunteering for a PTA committee, writing a letter to a local newspaper or member of Congress or signing a petition all offer important opportunities to build a better community, but in the very least, we must vote.

We have that opportunity August 5th when party primaries will be held to determine nominees for the general election in November.

Mississippi’s business community is politically aware and active. However, it also takes personal commitments from executives and line workers alike to see that the right candidates are on the job the next four years.

So vote, and vote smart this week and in November.
