Our Turn: Vote Louisiana

The November 4th election is an important one for the future of our state and nation.

Of course, we're civic-minded people here at WAFB, so we urge everyone to get out and vote but we do it with this caveat. We're only urging you to vote if you take the time to learn about the candidates and issues so you can make thoughtful decisions about who should be elected.

To that end, WAFB will broadcast the final debate in the race for U.S. Senate Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. We hope you'll join us for that. As for the other races, you can find more information on the "Vote Louisiana" section of our website, WAFB.com. We also have links to other websites with even more election information including a thorough explanation of the 14 proposed constitutional amendments which are on the ballot.

If you need motivation to participate in this election, just remember this old quote, "Bad politicians are elected by good people who don't vote."

That's "Our Turn." Now, it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to yourturn@wafb.com.
