Get out and vote!
In the United States, today is election day.
Every four years, we come together as a nation to vote for our leader. It’s a civic responsibility.
I don’t care who you back for president — Obama, Romney or some third-party candidate such as Gary Johnson or Peta Lindsay — just get out and vote.
I’m not a massive political person. I never have been and don’t think I ever will be. I have some thoughts and I’ll keep them to myself as I don’t think this blog is for political stands. I know who I’m going to vote for (well, outside a couple of local races… I’m still debating) and I’ll leave it at that.
Unfortunately, I’m not sure either candidate for president can fix what’s wrong. To me, I only want to see results. In the end, if the person I don’t vote for wins, I’ll be OK with it as long as he proves me wrong in fixing the country.
We’re a proud nation and this is the time when we have to stand as one and do what our forefathers gave us the right to do.
Google’s doodle of the day is Election based. When you click on it, you have a spot where you can search for your polling places. It also shows you each race you’ll be voting for, including local and national races.
Maybe you’re not sure you’ve registered? If you haven’t — make sure you do sometime soon so you can vote in the future. If you are trying to see if you have registered, there’s a website that will tell you how — CanIVote.org. You’ll need some personal info (name, birthday, county etc.) to be able to see your information. This way, you know if you’re registered.
In the end, it doesn’t matter who you vote for — just as long as you do it. It’s our right and our duty to do so. With so many people in dire economic situations, you need to make sure your vote is cast for the people you think will help most.
Try and throw aside party loyalty and vote with your mind. It’s an unfortunate reality that we don’t really know if either presidential candidate will be able to bring us back to more positive times. Same goes for congress people you may be voting for. Or if local officials will be able to make your area better.
We still must vote.
Make your voice heard. Get out and vote.
