As Franklin County citizens, we wish to remind everyone that we are Vermonters and Americans first. We all have the power to be heard by voting for the candidate of our choice. As Americans, it is our duty to protect our democracy by ensuring a peaceful election and a peaceful transition of power regardless of who wins.
