From The Office of Representative Jimmie Don Aycock
Greetings Friends, Constituents and Supporters:
The reason I am writing you today is to stress the importance of exercising your right to vote and making your voice heard in these political times. It is in this way that we should feel lucky to be Americans. As a free nation, we have a right to choose our officials, and these choices will affect the future of our state and nation.
Today marks the first day of early voting in Texas. The next few weeks and days will prove to be exciting not only on the national political landscape but also for the State of Texas. America does not always have a solid voter turnout. Roughly half of our country voted in the 2004 Presidential election. Many people feel detached from our system of government, I am here to tell you that your vote can make a difference. In many countries all over the world there are people who wish that they had this right, and as many of us know all too well, there are some of our very own fighting for others to have that very right, which we often take for granted.
Despite this fact, many of these citizens still line up for miles in order to try and make their voices heard. We should all vote, not only for ourselves but for all of the men and women who have died to give and maintain this right for us.
Despite our differences on policies, we are all connected through our right to vote. I implore you to take the opportunity to vote and I hope you feel as lucky as I do to live in a country that allows us to be responsible for our future.
