It can be hard to motivate voters to participate in primary elections - particularly when there are so many uncontested races. However, the votes that are cast this month will have significant implications on the outcome of the general election on November 8. Hopefully, Mesa County voters will make the effort to participate in the primary and let their voice be heard.
