Don’t let anyone buy your vote

Written by 

To the Editor:

Rumor has it that once again vote buying may be taking place in Swain County and on The Cherokee Reservation. These vote buyers will use cash, liquor or fear to get your vote, because your vote is important to them. It helps insure that the “Old Guard” stays in control.

But your vote is important to you. It’s important that you as an American have the freedom, the right and the honor to vote your own choice.

If you are approached by anyone offering you something in exchange for your vote, contact the Board of Elections. Vote buying is a crime.

Do we really want someone running our county who has to buy votes to win?
