NBC12 VIEWPOINT: Election Day is not that far away!

By: Kym Grinnage email

The season has officially started. No, not the football season, I am talking about the fourth quarter of the election season.

In case you haven't noticed, we have several big elections going on this year and the final outcome will all be up to you. Not only do we have the Presidential election, but for those of you that live in the city of Richmond, this may be the most important Mayoral election in your lifetime.

I know that many of you are sick and tired of hearing about all of the candidates and all of the politics, but it really is your responsibility to stay informed so that you can make an informed decision.

Although it's important to pay attention to what is happening with Hillary and Donald, you need to know what your state and local candidates are saying.

The most important job we all have right now is to make certain that our friends and family are all registered to vote. The deadline for registering in Virginia is October 17, and that's not that far away.

Please take advantage of the opportunity to see your candidates up and personal by watching and attending as many national and local political debates and forums as you can.
