Your assignment: Vote on Tuesday

Who knew that the lead-up to Election Day for the Santa Clarita City Council would become this interesting?
Candidates have fired back and forth regarding campaign material showing up in voters' mailboxes.

Financial disclosures - or the lack thereof - have been called into question.

And the five council hopefuls have turned out to forum after forum, hashing out issues including hospital expansion, traffic and infrastructure.

Some people probably expect little change on the council come Wednesday morning.

A few are hoping to see a radical turnover.

And, of course, there's a handful who haven't really paid attention or just don't care.

But all of us have a responsibility.

Residents of a free country, we have a calling to take democracy seriously and an incumbency to exercise our right to vote.

If you haven't yet decided which two candidates you want representing you, sit down and make a decision.

If you haven't paid attention to the race, take the next two days, look through our coverage, and get acquainted with the issues and candidates. Then make a choice.

On Tuesday, show up to the polls and cast your vote.

This city historically sees dismal voter turnout for municipal elections - a fact that is disappointing and embarrassing.

This year, let's band together and buck the trend.

Let's take democracy seriously and let our voices be heard by casting a vote.
