Election Day: Please Vote


I just wanted to take a quick second and encourage everyone to go to the polls today and make your voices heard.  Voting is a right that all of us should cherish and exercise every chance we get.  Even if your choices are the complete opposite of mine, I would rather have you cast that vote than stay at home and do nothing. 

Not voting is still making a choice.  You are choosing to not have your voice heard.  You are choosing to lend your support to the candidate you wouldn't have voted for.  By keeping yourself out of the process you are giving the go ahead to policies you may not agree with and may end up harming you in the future.

So the choice is this, do you make a purposeful decision or a wasted opportunity.

Now I could sit here and tell you who to vote for and why.  I'm not going to do that though.  I think most of you can figure out where on the political spectrum I reside.  What I will say is that this years midterm election matters more than most.  Today's votes will result in serious consequences that will have ramifications in most or our lives.  Policy and directional choices do matter, whether you voted or not. 

Make yourself heard and vote today.

Good reminder. I'm stopping on my way home. Of course, I have two main reasons - our libraries and our local school, both of which have funding on the ballot this time around.

I voted even though our Senate race was complete joke.

Well put. And don't complain about politics if you didn't vote! Pet peeve.
