After what seems like an endless election cycle, today is the day. By the end of the day, we will know who the next POTUS is going to be. The primaries, debates, speeches, and ads have all led up to this day. In the next few days, the seemingly endless political posts on social media from friends once again will give way to pictures of kids, puppies, and vacation photos. The seemingly chaotic election cycle is nearing an end. If you didn’t participate in early voting, the only thing left to do is GET OUT AND VOTE.
Voting is important. It is our duty. It is our voice. Over the course of our history, many voices were not heard. Today, all adult American citizen has the opportunity to have their voice heard. That wasn’t always the case. You can learn more about the history of voting and the efforts to make sure that everyone’s voice is heard at http://www.tyla.org/tyla/index.cfm/projects/vote-america/.
So, if you are undecided, do some research, pick a candidate, and get out there to vote. Despite some social media posts, you cannot vote for your candidate by text or email. Go stand in line, make some friends, and make your voice heard.
