I know, I know. Voting can be so hard! But is it really? There are so many options these days, even when we are not at home.
But what about when you can’t make it home on time or have been traveling or indisposed for health reasons for weeks before a big primary or general election?
In such cases, if you are in the state you are registered in, ask to fill out a provisional ballot instead of skipping voting entirely.
That way, your voice will still count. Voting is a way to live freely & tell the government leaders that we care about who represents us & how they spend our tax revenue.
Will one vote make a difference? Of course not! Statistically, it is a drop in the bucket. Collectively, we are strong. And we express that collectivity when we do things together.
Many people make up a country as diverse as the United States of America. You just might probably one of them if you are reading this!
So, be one of the cool people in the room next time & vote. Because you can’t spell democracy without “me,” now can you?
Be the dreamer of great dreams! One act of voting at a time. Greatness begins when we least expect it. That is why it is so rare & precious. Treasure it!
