When is election day in 2010? It is on November 2, 2010. That day is on a Tuesday. Plenty of folks will be visiting their local polls. Here is an article all about it! Make your vote count this election day! God bless the USA.
Election day is pretty important to me. I try to take the privilege of voting seriously. Yes, it is indeed a privilege. Just ask other countries that do not have that right or maybe, they have to risk their life just to make it to a voting place. Just to cast a vote may cause their death and still, these people struggle on. For their country. For their children. For a better tomorrow. For freedom. For choice. Their voice deserves to be heard. As yours does.
It was not that long ago that women in the USA were denied the right to vote. Race is also an issue and was quite a long battle. The USA has come a long way. How did they get there? How did we get here? Voting. Changing laws that were not right. Your vote counts. Each one matters. The voice of the majority of the people are expressed in a vote. A poll. A ballot cast for what you believe in. For what is to be law. Future economy, changes and laws will be affected by your one single solitary vote. That is personal power and you do have it, here in the great USA. Do not take it lightly.
Many older folks realize the importance of voting and this is good. Pass that important value on to your children and your grandchildren. Voting may seem so silly and unimportant to many young people. They need wise guidance from their parents and relatives about what their vote means. It means everything. Education can’t take the place of wisdom passed down from one relative to another. Encourage your family, young and old, to register to vote. Make them realize that they really can’t complain about the current political and economical situation unless they vote. They can make a vital difference and they need to know that fact.
I remember when MTV first started their “Rock the vote” campaign. I do believe that it did make a huge difference. Voting is cool. Voting is smart and many of the current music artists that are so very popular today do indeed vote. Some of today’s youth are not aware of that fact. They need to be. MTV carries on their great “Rock the vote” tradition in 2010. Kudos to them.
Fear of conflict is also a major factor in many people not voting. Maybe they do not wish to vote on the same party, candidate or side as their close family and friends. They may have a fear of being forced to state whom they voted for and why. What party or candidate you vote for is not an issue, as long a s you believe in what they are doing and what they stand for. You do not have disclose whom you vote for or why, if you do not want to. Educate yourself about the issues and candidates and make your own choice. Fearless. It is your right. Then, choose if you want to talk about that choice. Your choice. Your voice. Your right.
Just because you register to vote, that does not mean that you have to vote in every election. Vote when you can and vote wisely. Many Americans have died for your right to vote. Always remember that fact. It’s precious, your voting right. Cherish it. Use it. On election day, you can make a difference. Do it! Happy election day! November 2, 2010. Don’t forget.
