Feeling Disgruntled? Gruntled?
Want to have a say in the way things run?
There is a solution for that.
We call it Voting.
In order to vote you may have to jump through some artificial hoops, but it will be worth it.
Today is Voter Registration Day.
Please get out there, if you’ve not already done it or voted recently, and fill out the form to be able to vote in November.
If you’ve not voted recently and need to re-register, don’t let that stop you.
If you’ve never voted before and need to register, don’t let that stop you.
If you live where there are some Voter ID laws trying to make it harder for you, don’t let that stop you.
If you live where they are limiting when or where you can vote, don’t let that stop you.
The only thing that can stop you is you.
Find out what the rules are where you live and make sure you are prepared for November.
Get ID if you need ID. Register to vote if you need to register.
And by all means, get out and Vote in November.
After you register to vote, and before you vote in November, please educate yourself on the candidates. Please vote with logic and not with emotions. An ignorant voter is worse than no voter as they cancel out the vote of someone who cared enough to learn the issues.

Excellent point! I was taught to vote for the person not the party. And I’ve been known to leave a specific office vote blank rather than make an uninformed decision.
I would love it if more people voted like you. In my area, there was a proposal to remove part affiliation from ballots, but I don’t think it went anywhere. Keep up the good work.
