craft AP Wire photo Federal Mediators In Steel Sessions WASHINGTON negotiators for both sides AntiLitter Given Neglected By Many In Editorial There should be no question in the minds of register ed voters of Indiana County concerning one issue dur ing tomorrows balloting No one who loves his countiy and the heritage of free America can argue with the fact that every adult American should go to the polls and vote Twice each year American voters are asked to cast their vote in a primary and general election to insure that this government founded by free well informed citizens will long continue as the champion of the rights of free men No where else in the world is the right of the ballot so freely given or so sorrowfully practiced No where else in the world where men dare to speak of a free election does so small a percentage of the electorate go to the polls and vote More tragic however is the fact tha an even greater number of citizens are not even registered The American way of government is based on a two party system Parties are needed to give organization to the machinery of government and to the methods by which officials are nominated and elected In this campaign the major political parties of Indiana County have responded well to their role in the elec tion Rallies have been conducted candidates have visited the people and information concerning the campaign has gone out Now it is up to the voter All of the organization meetings speeches and other campaign techniques are for naught if the voter doesnt go to the polls and cast his ballot Party membership in Russia is granted to about five percent of the privileged few who have party favor To maintain their favored position virtually all of these privileged party members vote at every election while 95 percent of the population is denied the right of a vote Here where party membership requires only a signa ture on a registration form the citizenry has become complacent and the apparent apathy toward voting shown by those who are registered causes us to wonder if materialistic America today is worthy of the phrase as the land of the free and the home of the Important offices and issues are up for the decision of the voters of Indiana County tomorrow Anyone who has not informed himself concerning these can didates and issues is not only shirking his or her duty as an American citizen but is helping to undermine the very freedom and principles on which Democracy lives No one can show greater patriotism than by casting a ballot at the election tomorrow This is the only way to keep faith
