Members of the Democratic Party of Otero County volunteer manning the booth at the county fair to let people know we are alive and well and ready to register voters regardless of their political persuasion. It is so important for everyone to exercise their right to vote. It has been this writer's experience that things not used tend to lapse or completely disappear. The right to vote is a vital part of our Democracy and we need to keep it this way.
It is always a fun time in a booth at the fair. One sees people they know and meet many new people which is always interesting. Most people make kind remarks, but once in a while there's that one who is somewhat bombastic and my defense is simply to smile them away. We had a big wall behind us where people could write "Why I'm a Democrat" and there were some profound statements listed on this wall. This was my second year and I'm already looking forward to next year.
