The Mansfield Registrar of Voters is reminding residents who wish to cast their ballot in the Nov. 6, 2012 general election, to make sure they're registered to vote.
Andrea Epling and Beverly Miela, Mansfield's Democratic and Republican registrars, respectively, stressed the importance of voter participation.
"It's important to help determine who your leaders will be on the local, state and national level," Miela said.
Epling added: "U.S. Senate, State Senate and U.S. Representative in Congress - these three races are locally very important."
