Longtime dedicated voters were honored by the Thurston County Auditor, Kim Wyman on Thursday. Residents who have exercised their American right to vote for 50 years or more were recognized and presented with a certificate. One resident first voted for Franklin Roosevelt in the Presedential Election 75 years ago. Another honoree shared that she missed voting only once because she was serving in Belgium. She believes she played a part in making absentee ballots available for Americans abroad when she notified Bobby Kennedy of this issue.
Thank you to those who continue to participate in this patriotic duty!
