Voting a vital custom

By Debra Dobbins

A custom, according to Webster’s, is a “usual practice or habitual way of behaving.” A synonym for "custom" is “habit.”

I’ve been impressed with the number of citizens -- of varied political persuasions -- going door to door here in Grand Junction and urging fellow citizens to exercise a hard-won right, the right to vote.

Let’s hope on this Election Day that more and more Americans will decide to make voting a custom. It’s a habit that serves us all well.
