Noted Quote: Base Vote On Information

Voters should not be swayed by high-pitched rhetoric that's bound to reach the keening level by Tuesday. Voters should remember that bumper-sticker messages, 30-second spots on radio and television, brief printed advertisements and the number of political signs for a particular candidate cannot and do not define the people running for office and their abilities to get the job done.

Voting is a personal decision and should be based on information, not the sound of a candidate's name or the cleverness of campaign ads or a sea of colored signs. These people on the ballot, if elected, someday will have a say in our lives. They will control our tax dollars, oversee the running of government and the enforcement of laws. ~ From an editorial in the Tulsa World
