Midterm elections and local elections are arguably much more important than the Presidential elections. The results have far more impact on our daily lives.
In our house, I’m the only eligible voter. My husband is still working toward citizenship. I take voting very seriously and vote as often as possible. I grew up with my mother telling me that if you don’t vote, you don’t get to complain. Now, I notice that a lot of people love to complain about the government, but the last midterm elections, only 42% of people voted.
I know, I know. It’s hard to vote. Where do you even go? Honestly, I don’t even know where to go to vote. It was so much easier in California where they mailed you your ballot and all you had to do was pop it in the mail after you filled it out. But most states require you to go to the polling places to vote, so when I moved to Missouri, I missed the primaries. I just didn’t know where to go.
Well, wonder no more. At the bottom of this post is a tool that will tell you where to go to vote. It also provides voter ID requirements and other critical information. Now, despite the fact that it says that I voted, I haven’t yet. I’ll be doing that on election day. But this is such a great tool that I wanted to post it now. Just enter your address and out comes the information.
Go. Vote. Don’t miss it. Take your power back.
Be a part of the solution.
And if you live in the state of Missouri, please protect our schools by voting NO on Amendment 3.
