November 4, 2014 ~ Today I am thankful for the privilege to vote. Today is Election Day … the polls open early and stay open late. It saddens me that many Americans do not exercise their right to vote. Making changes to your typical Tuesday schedule to include a stop at your local polling place may seem like a major inconvenience, but I believe it’s something every American citizen should do.
It’s easy – the hardest thing you’d do would be researching the candidates to help you decide who would want to vote for. It is easy to find voting guides online, whether you have liberal or conservative beliefs.
Why waste such an honor and privilege? Go cast your vote … every vote counts. Let your voice be heard and counted. Whether your candidate is elected or not, at least you have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you voiced your opinion at the polls.
