Arrow-right Camera

Opinion

Not for followers

It is ironic that Mr. Monroe (Letters, Sept. 5) decries the loss of our “precious right to vote” when the bill he opposed (Senate Bill 5599) endeavors to turn the United States into a country in which the president is elected by the people, rather than by unknown “electors.”

I will readily admit that, if you’re the type of person who blindly agrees with the majority all the time, this bill is not your cup of tea. In effect, this bill grants a voice to the minority. A worthy effort, I’d say.

This bill actually makes your vote worth something even if you don’t agree with the majority of the people in the state. Thank you, Sen. Marr, for working for all of your constituents, not just the ones who blindly agree with you.
