Letter: ​Vote beyond your personal interests


In a recent discussion with one of my friends, he expressed his opinion that House Bill 2 should not hurt Gov. Pat McCrory’s chances of reelection because he sees it as a non-issue. In his words, the economic growth of N.C. should take precedent over where people can use the restroom.

It was only a non-issue to my friend in this election because the bill doesn’t apply to him as a straight male. As voters, we should consider a candidate’s policies beyond what directly concerns us. This November, let’s approach the ballot box with a societal scope that is wider than simply our own personal interests.
