Entertainment mogul Oprah Winfrey made an impassioned plea to voters today to not less this opportunity pass them by.
“For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn’t have the right to vote, and you are choosing not to vote — wherever you are in this state, in this country — you are dishonoring your family,” Winfrey said in Marietta, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb. “You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams, when you don’t vote.”
