Voter Hall of Fame

Today, an article in the Morning Call talks about the Pennsylvania Voter Hall of Fame for those individuals who vote for 50 consecutive general elections.

"I think it's an honor and a duty (to vote)," said Marie Sholtis, a Carbon County resident recently inducted.

House Majority Leader Keith R. McCall, a Democrat who represents Carbon County, lauded Sholtis and the other supervoters.

''I am inspired by your patriotism,'' McCall said during a ceremony at the county courthouse.

McCall said every time people vote, it demonstrates ''belief in the state and the country'' despite its faults.

The NET would like to challenge its members to become supervoters so that perhaps many years from now our members will be inducted into this prestigious hall of fame. Until then, keep on voting.
