Rarely in Utah history has there been an off-year election with as much significance as the one that will take place tomorrow. Because of what is at stake, Utah voters should flock to the polls to have their say.
Topping the list, of course, is the statewide referendum on school vouchers. Voters will decide whether to accept a controversial school voucher law passed earlier this year by the state legislature, or reject it. Based on such things as attendance at debates, Internet chatter and water cooler conversations, the voucher issue is generating exceptional interest in this year's election. Hopefully, it will translate into a high voter turnout.
Indeed, KSL encourages one and all to have their say on this most vital question. This is not a time for apathy or sitting on the sidelines.
Beyond vouchers, and a handful of other localized ballot questions, voters will be deciding who will govern their cities and towns for the next few years. This, too, is a most significant decision, since those elected have a direct say in many vital issues that are closest to the people.
As always is the case with elections, let your voice be heard through the ballot you cast, otherwise you'll compromise your right to complain about the outcome once the results are announced.
