Just minutes after casting his vote in Sioux Falls on Tuesday, Don says it's a privilege he doesn't take for granted!

"Absolutely," Don proudly told me.

From his perspective, Don says voting produces results!

"Yes it does! It makes a lot of difference."

What about the ballot measures?

"No, they weren't confusing. I read them before I got here. We have those everytime. I don't know how many years I voted in South Dakota. Probably about 40! This is a decision maker."

While at the voting location at Asbury United Methodist Church on Tuesday, I spoke with other residents who agreed with Don: voting is a right that is essential for a democracy to survive!
