Editorial: Vote on November 6

Election day is next Tuesday, November 6.  However you plan to vote, definitely get out there and do it.

Natural disasters tend to throw a population into a state of shock for a period of time.  Maine escaped much of the brunt of Sandy's wrath, but we may be worried about loved ones elsewhere, or simply disheartened by the extent of the devastation.

Even so, it is essential for everyone of voting age to learn as much as possible about the candidates, and the issues, and go to the polls on November 6, unless you have already voted.

Storms will come and go.  But the issues we are facing as a nation, and as a state, are too important and complex for us to let a minority elect our leaders and decide some of the important issues of the day.

Please vote next Tuesday.
