Thanks for the election coverage we depend on. ("Read election coverage online tonight, in print Thursday" by The Daily News, Nov. 6, 2019, posted at tdn.com.).

Our recent voting is the first step in our democratic system. We continue to count on the media to bring us updates of what our government is doing, so we as citizens can provide feedback.

Thanking our representatives when they do good things, such as Rep. Jamie Herrera Beutler co-sponsoring the bipartisan House Resolution 517, supporting the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. At the same time, asking her to support the expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit that will provide ladders out of poverty for millions of Americans in any new tax legislation.

Our voices make a difference, our representatives do listen, and The Daily News provides information and a place for us to speak up in this essential process of democracy.
