“This election was no more important then any other election,” said Holmes County Supervisor of Elections Debbie Wilcox Morris. “They are all equally important. If you don’t vote you allow other people to decide the governing bodies of your life.”

Morris said even though this year gave less time to vote early, more people voted this year then in 2008.

“The early voting was shortened from two weeks to eight days and we still had well over 100 more voting in this election then in 2008,” said Wilcox.

She said that this year also ran very smoothly.

“We were able to accommodate to everyone’s needs,” said Wilcox. “We want to recognize the poll workers. People don’t think about them and how dedicated they are, working from 6 a.m. till the polls close at 7:30 to 8 p.m. or some times even later.”

Morris stressed the importance of being an active voter.

“Every vote does count,” said Morris. “Being an involved voter has become more and more important in today's world. It is important for today's voters to be well informed in order to participate effectively in the elections process.”
