Everyday our military fight for our rights and freedoms. One of those freedoms is, your freedom to vote. In this upcoming election we are voting on the next President of the United States of America. Not to mention, there are also many propositions to vote on in various states.
“In 2016, 165 statewide ballot measures have been certified for the ballot in 35 states. Of these measures, 74 were put on the ballot by citizens through signature petitions, rather than by state legislatures. Eight measures were on pre-november elections, leaving 157 measures for statewide ballots in November.”
In my home state of California there are 18 proposition from legalization of marijuana, to raising costs of prescription medication for veterans, to taxation on the rich for school. I just received a booklet in the mail that goes over every proposition.
However, we do live in a digital age and everything is online in case you haven’t received the Official Voters Information Guide like I have check out the Presidential Elections page.
Voting is how your voice is heard.
The other day I was listening to the radio and there was a story about how many younger millennials don’t want to vote because they do not like the current candidates. I can understand why younger millennials might not want to vote, but there is a lot at stake. How I feel is if you don’t want to vote for the a Presidential Candidate then don’t but be there to vote for local and state propositions that effect you and your community.
