As I’m sure you’re aware, the midterm elections are on Tuesday, November 6. I have just one request: Please vote!
I think we’ve seen how much an election can change things; so no matter which side of the political aisle you’re on, it’s so important to go vote. If your state has early voting, get out there now! (Unfortunately, New York State, where I live, does not have early voting.)
As an NCP member, you know how valuable your opinion is. Well, the same is true for elections. Your vote – along with the votes of your family, friends, and neighbors – can help determine the direction of the country.
Voter turnout in the United States can fluctuate, depending on the type of election. In recent presidential election years, about 60% of the voting eligible population votes, while about 40% votes during midterm elections, according to fairvote.org.
We are very fortunate to be able to vote. So, please exercise that right and pick whomever you believe will do the best job for your town/village, county, congressional district, state, and the country as a whole.
Here is some useful voting information:
