Ummm, if you do not know what day it is and you live in America, please turn on your television. Today, my friends, is Election Day – the day we figure out who will run our country for the next for years. Over the course of this process, I have talked about the issue of education and the different views of each candidate. However there are so many topics to take into consideration when going to vote. Issues such as fracking, immigration, healthcare, and energy should have been looked into.
As citizens of the United States of America, exercise your right and go out. You may think that your vote does not count, I’d like to differ. Every vote – EVERY VOTE – counts. Don’t believe the polls, get out and vote; your vote will definitely matter this year. Regardless of what you believe and who supports your beliefs, please go out and vote. I cannot stress enough how important your vote it.
If Romney fails to carry Florida, North Carolina and Virginia, the election will be over early. If he does take those early swing states, all eyes will be on Ohio, Wisconsin, Colorado, Iowa and New Hampshire. Similarly, Obama made campaign stops in Wisconsin and Ohio, before holding a final rally in Iowa, the state that gave him his first primary victory in his historic 2008 White House campaign.
In order to Vote, a person must be:
- be a United States citizen;
