 In today’s edition of the paper there is a special tabloid section devoted to the Tuesday election.

 This has been a particularly long election. If you are like most people, you probably have had your fill of the constant barrage of political commercials and ads that have come your way.

 We too will be glad when the election is over. We have tried our best to introduce you to and bring out the issues that will affect all of us not in just the near future, but for generations to come here in Newton County.

 If you have not voted, we urge you to vote on Tuesday. You may encounter longer lines than you are used to but don’t be discouraged.

 Truly every vote does count.

 By our press deadline at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday we may not yet have complete local results, but we will have complete results on our Web site

 The election results will be updated continually on this site.

 On the national side we don’t know who is going to be our next president. We ask that this morning as you attend your church or even if you don’t still take a moment and ask God to continue to keep his hand of grace on our country and that he protect and help guide the decisions our next president will face.
