I was so eager to fill my ballot out this year. This election is truly one we will never forget. With so much on the line and election day around the corner, I wanted to focus this week's blog post on voting!
I realize we have all been bombarded by people who are asking you to vote. I get it! But it's still not going to stop me to ask YOU. Have you checked your voter registration status? It may not be too late depending on what state you live in. To check your voter status, click here.
All set? Great!
If you had your ballot mailed to you and you're planning to drop your ballot off at a ballot drop box, make sure it is an official drop box. Unfortunately, a few states have had cases of groups planting out fake collection boxes. Click here for a helpful article
Whether you are voting by mail, ballot box, or in person, please hold onto your voter stub! It is so important that we follow up on our ballots and make sure our vote was counted. Every single vote counts. Track your ballot with information from this article.
The truth is, I have tried to stay away from posting too much about politics over the last year. Personally, I do not consider climate change to be political. It is a fact and should be a bipartisan issue, as the danger faces each and every one of us. This is different, democracy is on the line.
We can do this. I know there is anxiety flowing through the country (and the rest of the world) as we are currently fighting to restore dignity to our highest office, the future of our planet, and too many human rights to name. Michelle Obama said it best: "Vote like your life depends on it. Because it does."
Vote for truth, for reason. Vote for leadership, for common sense. Vote for empathy, and community.
It is for these exact reasons that I will be voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for President and Vice President of the United States of America.
Thank you for checking in this week, and a special shoutout to all the early voters!
Sending you all love and light this Friday.
Until next time
