Happy National Voter Registration Day!
As I am writing this we are 42 days out from arguably the most important election we will have in our life time. We are incredibly blessed to live in this country and have the ability to make change. As the day days get closer we will definitely talk more about voting and why we should, but I wanted to talk a little bit more about it now.
Having a safe and free election isn’t something every country has. Many of our ancestors have worked hard for us to be able to have this opportunity. When you vote you aren’t just voting for the President you are voting for the next Supreme Court Justice, your governor, your state representative, Congress members as well as local referendums that will affect your daily life. Your vote can truly make a difference, ESPECIALLY on the local level. The way our world has been polarized your one vote can be the difference between keeping laws that protect you and laws that want to take away your rights.
When you go into that booth, no one else will be there. Your vote is between you and God. Also remember ladies, you don’t have to vote Democrat.
