Get out and vote for the 2015 Primary

-A A +A

Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. May 19 is primary election day, when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for governor, commissioner of agriculture and other constitutional officers. 

Members of Henry County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.

As Kentuckians, it is our responsibility to find out the ideas of each candidate. And, as Henry Countians, it is our responsibility to let the candidates know what issues are important to our community, and it’s easy to do. 

It is critically important we have elected officials in office who understand the importance of agriculture and the issues confronting rural Kentucky. 

Be involved and attend the functions candidates attend and tell them what is important and ask them about their positions on key issues. Campaigns select issues based on what voters tell them are important.

Your involvement will make a difference in the process. First, you must bring your issues to the front of the debate. Then, hold the candidates accountable by going to vote. 

Henry County Farm Bureau urges you to make an impact by voting in the May 19 primary.


Terry A. Rowlett,   president, Henry County Farm Bureau
