If you don’t already know by now, this is an election year.
This isn’t just another election year, it is THE MOST important election year of your life.
Everyone age 18 and over should exercise their right to vote in EVERY presidential election. However, if you haven’t ever voted then this IS the time to start.
There are so many things that our country has gone through and will be going through; therefore, it is your responsibility as an American citizen to exercise your rights at the polls.
Many people think it’s a waste of time to vote because ultimately, the electoral college process can override the normal voting process.
The Electoral College is a body of electors established by the United States Constitution, which forms every four years for the sole purpose of electing the president and vice president of the United StatesWikipedia
Nevertheless, your vote matters no matter what.
Furthermore, the electoral college can determine the outcome of the final election by polling together certain states that have more electoral votes than other states.
There is a total number of electoral college votes for the United States. That number is 538. Each state is given a certain number of electoral votes based on the size of the state. This is part of the reason why its important to complete the census information the years that they are gathering this information.
Did you receive numerous census letters in the mail?
Dif you receive knocks at your door as I did? If you reside in one of the major states then you did.
The reason they were bugging is because the state wanted their fair share of EC votes because it could be THE DECIDING factor of the presidential election.
See, we all should have paid more attention in GOVERNMENT class in high school and college. If we would have paid more attention OR if our educators would have made it more interesting, then we might enjoy the process of people involved in our political system a lot better
The past years election process have proven that going to the polls matter.
Americans need to take a stance and vote. This isn’t the time to bow out gracefully.
We shouldn’t vote straight party tickets anymore. Everyone should have already done research on who they are voting for and why.
Here’s a few things I feel you should look for when choosing your candidate:
- Does this person represent who you are as a person?
- When you look at their morals and values, do they have the same as you?
- If you became incapacitated and someone needed to run your family and home: would you trust this person to take over and things would run just as if you were still here ?
- Would they be able to make sound decisions for your family?
- Would they be able to coordinate your family situations?
- Would they be able to represent you in front of God/Jesus?
- Can they speak for you and everything you’re about and people would not miss you because they would see this person in ALL your intentions?
- Would they love and care for your family just as you have all these years?
- Are they honest and trustworthy as you are?
- When you close your eyes can you see them helping you when you need them the most?
If you answers YES to most of those questions then you have your candidate.
That wasn’t very hard, was it?
The person you elect must have your best interest at heart along with your family members.
Let’s not bring friends into this equation. Let’s simply talk about those you dearly love, those you would die for, and those who mean the world to you.
If money wasn’t an object, this is who you would entrust your life to.
FINALLY, take these simple steps and get out to the polls and make that CHOICE count.
