EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – One Evansville man says he’s voted in nearly every election — only missing one primary.
Gary Renschler encourages everyone to vote because it’s our right as Americans.
But he says that right comes to us at a price for those defending our country.
Renschler says the grandfather wasn’t very pleased when he found his grandson missed an election.
“Well, my grandfather was in a foxhole in Germany and I didn’t go vote one time, because there wasn’t much of a choice in the primary election and he said I don’t care if there’s nobody on there, you should vote, because a lot of men died that can’t be here today.”
Voting is so important to Renschler – he arrived before polls even opened.
