SHERMAN, Tex. -- The Grayson County Republican Women's Club had a special visitor at their meeting on Friday. Texas Secretary of State Roger Williams stopped in to ask a favor of the group. Stephanie Brletic has the details.
Williams says local Republican ladies are strong voters and are great at encouraging others to get out to the polls, and on Friday, that is just what he asked them to do.
Rogers says every vote is going to count during this presidential election year, so he is helping get a grassroots voting movement off the ground because as Secretary of State, he has counted votes and says there simply aren't enough of them.
But voters in Texas, and specifically here in Grayson County, can cast their vote and help make a big difference on Election Day.
"Our elections both nationwide and statewide will be so close this year, that who gets the vote out is who's going to win. I’m just here to remind them, and thank them for what they've done in the past but remind them of what their charge is in the future," Williams said.
Williams says it's surprising that more Texans don't vote because all Texans have an opinion, but unfortunately they don't always take those opinions to the polls.
