I read with dismay that only 57 percent of the registered voters in Manatee County participated in Tuesday's election. Let me say, I have never served in the military. But as long as there are men and women who will defend my right to vote, I will always do so.
There are many fine people in the military, and some of them get killed. Not voting is like desecrating their graves. It is a disgrace.
