Your VOTE is your VOICE. As Rep. John Lewis so eloquently stated in his DNC speech: “Too many people struggled, suffered, and died to make it possible for every American to exercise their right to vote. So, Democrats, we must not be silent. We must stand up, speak up, and speak out.”
The value of our vote cannot be diminished by the efforts of those who want otherwise. The value of our vote is more precious than the megabucks of the super PACs. There is too much at stake not to let our collective voices be heard in chorus at the polls on election day November 6th. Together we can help President Obama move it FORWARD!
We still have much work to do to make sure that everyone who wants to vote is able to vote. Although we mostly hear about the voter restriction and suppression efforts in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, it is happening in some form or another in other states as well.
Be sure that you are aware of the voter ID requirements in your state. There are now 69 days until the election, but in some states you have to be registered to vote 30 days BEFORE the election. For example, in Indiana, you have to be registered no later than October 9th in order to vote in the general election on November 6th. There is no time to waste. No waiting to the last minute. We have to work together to get this done. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!!
REMEMBER: if you have moved since you last voted, then you will need to register to vote in your new precinct, ward, or district. Do not be disenfanchised.
