The Missouri 8th district special election is here. In just about 24 hours it will be another page in the history books. The candidates have been traversing the district working to be the first congressman from this district in more than three decades that is not an Emerson. They are all ready and willing to go to Washington asking for your vote.
Your vote is a vote that one of them deserves to get. Each and every one of us should feel the responsibility to cast that vote. Unfortunately, many folks won't make the time to go to the polls, and that is a shame.
Last week we celebrated Memorial Day. Many of us paid homage to the men and women who gave their lives for our country, men and women who gave their lives so that you and I can stand up, be counted, and cast that vote. It is our solemn obligation. One that none of us should take lightly. We hope you've done your homework and make your best decision for who you want to represent you in our government. Once the polls close, KFVS12 will be giving you up to the minute results on TV, online, and on your mobile device. Go to the polls and cast your vote. It's your responsibility.
