I voted!

And I hope you choose to do the same. Politics can be overwhelming and annoying. I totally get that. I’m just as tired of politics as everyone else is. One more mud-slinging commercial with grainy black and white photos of politicians accompanied by dramatic music, and I swear I’ll pull my hair out.

But political action and policy changes can make huge improvements in people’s lives. Consider how fortunate you are to live in a country where you actually have a say in how things are done! Voting is a concrete and effective way to express your opinions about how your country should be run. If you don’t like something, this is your opportunity to try to change it.

So go vote!
