Congressional candidate Dr. Robert Underwood, accompanied by his wife Nerissa, officially cast their votes Wednesday morning ahead of the Nov. 3 general election.
Outside the GCIC building, Underwood spoke to the media about how he trusts “the miracle of democracy” in the sense that every vote counts as everybody else’s.
And as the community heads to the polls on Tuesday, Underwood wants them to look at the ballot and what it represents.
“There’s going to be more than just names on the ballot. There’s going to be more than just names of political parties on the ballot. There’s going to be values on that ballot…trust…integrity…confidence…a sense of purpose on that ballot,” Underwood said.
He added: “Ladies and gentlemen, when you take a look at that ballot, just look at those names…And when you look at those values, measure the candidates against them.”
Underwood is running against fellow Democrat Michael San Nicolas and Republican Wil Castro.
