An ongoing series

When it comes to politics, Effingham County is a sea of red in a state of blue. That’s not to say viewpoints from across the political spectrum don’t exist here.

In collaboration with its sister papers across the country, the Effingham Daily News has embarked on a three-year project to take the “Pulse of the Voters.” Stories will appear quarterly, as we talk to voters in their homes, at work, in churches and diners, on street corners, and anywhere else they gather to shape the discussion that drives democracy.

If you’d like to add your voice to future installments of this project, contact the EDN editor by email at jeff.long@effinghamdailynews.com or by phone at 217-347-7151 ext. 129. We also encourage Letters to the Editor regarding issues raised in these stories. Email them to that address, or by post to 201 N. Banker St., Effingham, IL 62401.

The stories are collected online at effinghamdailynews.com/news/pulse_of_the_voters.
