Voting is a right

I am writing this in response to Kristen Sohacki’s letter printed Nov. 14. Whether or not a voter is uninformed or not, he still has the right to vote.

I personally don’t recall any of the candidates whom were up for election stating their position on censorship.

In fact, in the last few years, the political campaigns I have seen have rarely been issue-oriented. Rather, they have been campaigns of mudslinging and personal attacks upon one another.

Gaining information about where a particular candidate stands on different issues is difficult, if not impossible. Voter’s are uninformed because information is not accessible.

In your concluding statement, you say “voting is a privilege,” while it is a right every American citizen over 18 years of age has and will have as long as the U.S. Constitution is the governing document of our land.
