Happy election day! Whether you’ve already voted by mail or you plan to visit the polls today, we hope you have feel more prepared at the ballot box because of our efforts over the last weeks and months.
As a news service whose tagline is “Stories that Build Democracy,” we're pretty passionate about encouraging the community to get informed and vote. We’ve spent months covering the issues and candidates that matter to our readers and today we’re out at polling stations hearing directly from our community and keeping an eye on what's happening on the ground.
The outcome of today’s election will impact our community for years to come. But regardless of who wins, Shasta Scout isn’t going anywhere. We’ll continue to be your go-to source for holding politicians, no matter who they are, accountable to the principles of democracy and the needs of our community.
You make this critical work possible. Covering our community takes a tremendous amount of time, heart and courage (not to mention resources.) We're proud to do it but we would love the tangible support of our community behind us, particularly today.
