Election Day! GO VOTE!!!!!!

Even if you have to stand in line, even if it makes you miss a shift at work, even if you are scared of protestors or campaigners outside the polling line, DO IT!!!  Consistently, polling shows that the majority of people in America don’t agree with the politicians, but the politicians don’t care, because the majority of people don’t vote.  If you want America to start reflecting the concerns of people of color, young people, and everyone else who doesn’t feel heard, we need to show that we will show up and help elect people.  Or not elect them.  If you don’t choose “the better of two bad options”, then the worse of the two bad options will keep winning.  And if you need more information, here is google’s voter tool: https://www.google.com/search?q=where+do+i+vote#eob=va/4/16/

 

And, if that didn’t inspire you, here is a playlist of songs about how people need to stand up and try to improve their society.

    • That would be nice, but it’s not the case in the U.S.

      Polling places (in theory) are open long enough so that you are able to vote before or after work. In Illinois, the polls are open from 6 AM to 7 PM (6:00 – 19:00).

      • p.s. to above. After writing that comment, I went to vote, At 6:30 AM, the line of people waiting to vote was out the door and onto the sidewalk. My sleepy little polling place never has that many waiting . . .
