I know it’s only August, but both the Democratic and Republican parties will be holding their conventions soon and the Presidential election frenzy has already begun. Before you decide that all politicians are crooked or that your vote doesn’t really matter, I want to encourage you, “Don’t abandon the ship, by not voting.”
Every vote matters and yours is important as well as those of your friends and neighbors. We need to be using this time to encourage people to
- Register to vote, if they have not done so
- Get informed
- Get out to vote
- Vote intelligently
The Internet is replete with stories about the difference that one vote has made, yet many of them have proven to be myths. That said, your vote does count and so does your influence. If you have done your homework (see yesterday’s blog) and feel strongly about an issue, why not use social media to get some dialogue going? You don’t want to be arrogant, but you certainly want to be knowledgeable and share what you’ve learned.
We want to keep our freedoms, so use your influence to help keep them.
