Find your location to vote here: Go Vote!

I know you probably have heard that tomorrow is one of the most relevant, important elections in U.S. history and it is. Our country has gone down a economic, international, health care and educational slump and is enduring the consequences of it. I’m not writing this to tell you to vote for a specific candidate. I’m writing this to say, if you are registered to vote, GO VOTE. My generation takes too many things for granted, its the norm now to see an African-American as a Democratic Presidential Nominee or a white woman have a great chance at winning the nominee as well.

Today, people who are in the minority whether its race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or religion have so many opportunities than our elders have. Now is not the time to throw away the right to vote, a right that people died and fought to have. It may seem like a drag, waiting online just to cast a vote, but its not just a vote, it really does make your voice heard. It gives you an opportunity to determine how politics run in this country. It let’s congress and the senate know what the American citizens are thinking, what they’re demands are and what needs to be done. Even if you don’t support Senator Barack Obama or Senator John McCain, there are other candidates in the running, like Cynthia McKinney for the Green Party.

Don’t waste this right. Remember, only those who have voted can complain if their candidate isn’t chosen.
