One of the most important and fundamental rights we enjoy as citizens of the United States is the right to vote for the people who represent our interests and us at all levels of our Government. This right is the foundation upon which our democratic form of Government is based. It’s a civic duty we should all feel privileged to perform.
It is once again time to perform that civic duty to cast our ballots and let our voices be heard. On June 8, 2010 Montana will hold its Primary Election. On this year’s Primary ballot we will be voting for who will represent Montana in our sole seat in the U.S. House of Representatives and narrowing down the field of State Legislative Candidates who are aiming for a shot to represent us during the 2011 Montana Legislative Session as well as other races for seats on the Montana Supreme Court and the Public Service Commission.
If you are not registered to vote and would like to register or if you have moved since you last registered and need to update your registration, Summit can help you with a new registration card. Or, for more information on the status of your registration, for information on contacting your local elections administrator’s office, or to find out which district you live in you can visit the State’s election center at http://sos.mt.gov/Elections. A full list of legislative and non-legislative candidates is also available on the state’s election website.
Remember, we live in a Democracy and a Democracy is not a spectator sport, it requires participation – YOUR PARTICIPATION!
