71 Days Until Mid Term Elections

Your vote is your voice.

In a world where we often feel like no one hears us, it can be tempting to think that we don't have a voice, especially in politics. Nothing could be further from the truth. As a member of the United States of America's democracy, each citizen over the age of 18 whose voting privileges have not been revoked, has the right to cast a vote for their elected representatives. 

You may only have one vote but that one vote combined with other like-minded individuals is what helps to produce the progress that we seek in our government. When you abstain from voting, you abstain from voicing your opinion about the direction of your local, state, and federal government.

Even if you never post a political comment on social media, never watch an hour of the news, or engage in one political debate; your vote and voice is just as valid as the people who are posting, watching and otherwise absorbed in politics daily. 

Let your voice be heard and make plans to vote on November 6th. Now is not the time to be silent. Use your voice to let your elected officials know which direction you think our government should be headed.
