In the closing days of this election, the WCPO editorial board wrestled with what to say about voting. Lots of words like “rigged election” and ”voter fraud” are being thrown around.  We don’t buy into that line and neither do most responsible public officials.

But rather than add to all the words already written about the integrity of our elections, we thought a one-word editorial would be enough.

So here it is: VOTE!

That’s it: VOTE!

And please note the exclamation point. This is urgent! This is important! The time is now!

After nearly two years of campaign rhetoric, it’s your turn. So … VOTE!
