With election day being a mere 4 days away, now is the time to make sure you’ve researched the issues and decided who and what you will vote for. Whether you’re a democrat or republican, it’s essential you vote and make sure your voice is heard. Those who don’t vote often argue that they’re just one person and their vote doesn’t really matter. The truth is that every single person’s vote counts and in fact, in 2000 the presidential election truly came down to a couple hundred votes in Florida.
Moreover, the right to vote is a great privilege and it wasn’t so long ago that not everyone had this right. For many years, women, minorities, and those under 21 were denied the right to vote. A lot of hard work and sacrifice went into ensuring equal opportunity voting and you should be proud to go down to the polls on November 6th (or cast your vote early by mail!) and cast your vote.
Lastly, even if you don’t consider yourself a particularly political person, there’s surely something you strongly agree or disagree with and it’s important you support the candidate or proposition that aligns with your views. Election outcomes truly do affect you and your family and you do have the power to make a difference.
