No more excuses, voters

To the Editor:

In past elections, it has bIeen pointed out that turn out has been very poor. The usual excuses are:

• I don't know who's running and for what?

• I don't have enough time to research the candidates and their opinions.

• I'm not sure where to vote or what township I'm in or if I'm eligible to vote.

• I don't know where to find information.

• The weather was bad and I didn't feel like going.

Well, now you have no more excuses. The Northwest Herald and McHenry County have done all the upfront work for you.

The Voter's Information Guide inside the Northwest Herald on March 27 printed the ballot for every municipality and school district. Very detailed information is on the Northwest Herald website – elections.nwherald.com.

Millions of people around the world wish they could vote. Get off your butt and just do it.
