“Yor vote is precious, almost sacred. It is the most powerful non-violent tool we have to create a more perfect union.” -Rep John Lewis
The act of voting is one of the ways that you know you’re alive and awake: that you know you matter, that you are enough to make a difference, that you have a voice that you will use, and that you know what’s at stake. So please, GET YOURSELF REGISTERED! Critical regiration deadlines are fast approaching, so don’t wait. Register now! Vote early if you can, and be sure your friends, family, and neighbors are registered too!
And while we’re on the subject of voting and civic engagement, I wanted to direct your attention to two fantastic articles by my dear friend Sarah Sofie Flicker. She perfectly sums up the urgency of this moment and the power of your vote. As she writes, “Even if you believe that politics have become a divisive, blurred, money machine of a shitshow, it does affect us.” So after you’ve registered, check out her pieces on HelloGiggles (here and here), they’re DEFINITELY worth the read.
