Millennials your vote counts in this 2016 American Presidential Election. You showed us your political passion with your support of Bernie Sanders. You knocked doors. Handed out information reminding us to register to vote. You reminded us that we could register and vote online. You diverted your energy to helping local candidates by door to door canvassing.
Yet, you hesitate to declared your Presidential pick. It’s your right to remain mute about your selection. You are an American. You have the right to your silence, but you also have the privilege of voting.
Voting is the price we pay for being able to speak out, choosing how we want to live our life. Voting supports our ability to be part of a religious group or to declare our agnostic position.
Elections determine educational funding, taxes (city, state, federal), who is on the Board of Education. Health plans: who, how, and why you and I are covered is decided by the voters. Are you going to be one of those people who vote for a person because you know where they stand issues not only facing you today but in the future?
Millennials, this isn’t a scolding. This is the conversation my family is having around the dinner table. Our millennials speak their minds with their friends and at the polls.
Your vote counts. If you vote for a third-party candidate, you give up you voice. A third party candidate will not be president. One of the major party candidates will be president. Which can you live with? Which candidate has your future in mind? Which candidate represents you?
Why not look into the platforms of the two major party candidates. Decide if you really want to throw a vote away. Check out what PoliticalFacts.com has to say about Clinton and Trump using the links below.
