This Election Day, there are many reasons to vote. Here's one more reason that we here at WAFB and the Secretary of State's office hope you will really take to heart.

There's a new program for Louisiana voters called: Honor Vets Vote. You can log onto the Secretary of State's website, fill in your information and choose a veteran or current service member and dedicate your vote to them.

The Secretary of State's office will send you your choice of a certificate, bumper sticker or lapel pin to signify your decision to dedicate your vote to a veteran. Then, you proudly vote with that person in mind on Election Day.

This is a great way to honor those who have fought and sacrificed for our freedoms and our right to vote.
