I know I don’t post much anymore and no one will probably even read this, but I’m gonna say this anyways. 

VOTE! Midterm elections and state and local elections are just as important as voting for the President. There is such a small percentage of people that actually vote. We should all be voting. There really is no excuse, the options are endless, mail, early voting and 7 am to 7 pm hours on election day. I voted on Saturday and my local voting spot had a place where you could check how long the wait time would be. Mine stated less than 15 mins and when I got there I went right in to vote. I was in and out under 15 mins. 

As for voting, no matter whom you are voting for, it is important for your vote to count. There are so many things in the world now that need to change and need to advance. If we, the people, vote more … it shows that we care more. The generation gaps are getting pretty big. Baby boomers are in their prime years for voting and seem pretty stuck in the mud by today’s standard, yet our younger generation is the one fueling the technology age and becoming more accepting of certain age old stigmas. This gap is what causes the younger generations to not vote. Everyone’s tired of hearing the same old rhetoric being shoved on us with the 24 hour news cycle and this can cause complacency. Giving up because of the thoughts that nothing will change, is precisely what is wrong with voting in America. 

Lastly, take pride in the fact that you can vote. Sure we live in a “free country” and we all have the right to vote, but it wasn’t always that way. Women were given the right to vote in 1919, so it hasn’t even been 100 years yet. So make your great grandmother proud and VOTE!
