Today is Primary Election Day in several places across the country, including the District of Columbia, New York and Massachusetts. This is only an early step in the overall process and candidates are ramping up ads and public appearances in time for the big day in November.

We at Sip & Savor would like to take this time to remind our readers of the importance of voting.  It's both a right and responsibility of all citizens of this country to make their voices heard.  So be sure to get out there and cast your ballot.

For those that are not yet registered to vote, head to Rock The Vote for forms, Voter Help Desk and other important campaign updates…and outcomes, too!
