Despite all the media hype, this is not the time to be discouraged, disillusioned or indifferent.  Don’t let the recent polls give you reason to despair or become weary in well doing!!  NOW is the time to get fired up and fight back!  Too many of our rural and inner city voters are being subjected to covert voter suppression.  Call all of your relatives, church members, colleagues and friends, especially young adults to remind them that their VOTE MATTERS!!  Be sure to get out and vote on November 8th or before.
