Voting

2016 06 29 - voteVoting is a huge right and responsibility. So much so that on July 1, 1971, Congress passed the 26th amendment, bringing several million more voters into the booths – people ages 18-20. Prior to that date, only those 21 and older enjoyed the privilege of casting their vote.

Since then, every eligible person age 18 and up in the U.S. has a say in government; a freedom many countries lack and one which can tend to breed complacency in the U.S. Don’t let familiarity breed contempt. Inform yourself about issues and candidates (national, state and local) and carve out the time to cast that vote. It matters.
