SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) — Election day often conjures images of bustling polling stations, long lines, and a frenetic pace. However, when it comes to local elections, a different, more tranquil scene sometimes unfolds.
However, this morning, on a day that saw the familiar ebb and flow of a local election, at St. Michael and St. Peter Church, a Syracuse resident, Geno Ghezzi, was once again at the voting polls, marking an impressive milestone as he cast his ballot for the 50th consecutive time.
“Well I’m 68-years-old and I’ve voted sense I’ve been 18-years-old every time. And I just feel that it’s something that we should do as citizens of the United States,” said Ghezzi.
Ghezzi aims to underscore the significance of voting in today’s society. According to him, participating in the democratic process is incredibly vital. With thousands of people showing up to express their viewpoints, his message is crystal clear.
“If you don’t put your thoughts in and you don’t vote for people you want, then don’t complain about anything,” said Ghezzi.
For Ghezzi, voting serves as a guiding beacon for out society, and he earnestly encourages all to stay actively involved in the process.
