Today is the last day to register to vote in California, the lovely state where i live. Its important to participate in this democratic process of ours in this great nation… for more then a few reasons.
1. its your responsibility as an American to vote
2. you don’t get to complain about election results if you don’t vote
3. wont be eligible for the ” i have voted” Jenny Special to be announced soon
Voting is Patriotic, its not just a right its a damn responsibility. Your vote can change the world and your voice needs to be heard. Your vote is the representation that this taxation gives you. So take the time today to go to the post office, libriary and fill out the little one page form or do it online if you cant get out an and register to vote. Then make sure you take the time to get off your lazy ass out on November 4th and vote your conscious.
The 19th amendment is one of my favorites because it gave women the right to vote. We’ve only had that right since 1920 when it was ratified on August 18 and that’s not even 100 years. Women such as Alice Paul and Lucy Burns and Dora Lewis fought long and hard and it was a tough battle to give me the right to vote these years later and to not do so is to dishonor those women. So keep that in mind if you decide to let this Nov 4th pass and not perform your civic duty.
let your voice be heard, register to vote and on November 4th get your ass to the polls!
