Vote Early and Often!


Go out and vote today. I don't care if you vote Republican or Democrat, Independent or Green Rainbow, or even a write in. Just vote! If you are of legal age and are registered to vote go and do it. Voting is what makes the United States a great country and I find it disheartening that voter turn out in this country is so low. You may think your vote doesn't count, but it really does. In Freetown, Massachusetts' selectman elections this past March, the two candidates who ran for the open seat were separated by a total of 4 votes. 4 VOTES!!! You cannot tell me that your vote doesn't matter in these elections. If you don't vote, you have no right to complain about the policy of the United States.

Your vote keeps democracy alive and well. If you are able to vote, you have no excuse not to. Think of the founding fathers signing the Declaration of Independence 230 years ago. They committed treason to earn the United States' liberty and the right to vote. Think of the soldiers fighting overseas. If you don't vote and do your part to preserve democracy, then why are they there?

Please do what is right and be an informed participant in making the government of the United States of America the best that it can be.
