Alaskans again have the privilege to go to the polls Tuesday and express their views by voting for the candidates of their choice. There also are several important ballot propositions that deserve careful consideration by peninsula residents.
KPC would like to encourage everyone to make the effort to get out and vote. Collectively, everyone's vote matters and the right to vote is something no one should take for granted in American society.
