To say this upcoming election is one of the most important we’ve had in years isn’t hyperbole. The president, members of the House of Representatives, the Senate, judges and district attorneys need to be voted on. People who will decide whether police officers will be charged with murdering an unarmed black person, and the severity of those charges. There might be important issues on the ballot that will affect your quality of life, how much funding schools will get, etc.
You can choose to stick with the current administration and watch things go from bad to worse and see people suffer. Or you can elect a new president to turn things around and move us forward.
Either way, nobody wants to hear “I didn’t vote because it doesn’t change anything”, “Our vote doesn’t matter” or “One vote won’t change anything” because you’re wrong. Your vote does matter and one vote can hold a lot of power. Voting is one of the most effective methods to invoke change.
Whether you decide to vote by mail or go to the polls, please make sure you vote on or before November 3rd.
