Happy Election Day friends! I just wanted to hop on here and remind everyone to vote! I will admit that I used to be one of those people that would say, “I don’t care about politics.” The reality is that is total BS. Politics effect everyone. Politics effect our daily lives. If you have any other excuses, just listen to President Obama on why those aren’t exactly excuses.
Voting can be difficult. Finding your polling place. Understanding what is on the ballot. Knowing what you need to bring. So here are a few resources to help you in the process!
When We All Vote. You can check where to vote, what is on your ballot, you registration status, election results and so much more! They also have a hotline if you have any questions!
Rock the Vote. Gives you resources on what is on the ballot and what you need to bring to the polls. A great place to read up on the issues and make sure you are prepared for your trip to the polls!
The Skimm. Gives you voting resources based on where you live. Can show you what your ballot will look like and what all of those things mean!
Your particular state and county may also have voting guides that you can look at. Also, don’t forgot that if you live in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Utah, Vermont, Washington D.C., Wisconsin or Wyoming you are able to register to vote today at a polling place.

All in all, your vote matters. And it is a right not everyone in the world is afforded. So, get out and vote! Let your voice be heard! Until next time, friends… CMB
