    Vote November 6! Your Voice Matters

    by Maya Kitchens

    Ready to Vote, November 6th (Midterm Election Day)

    As the midterm elections near, it is important to make sure to get out and vote! As Americans, we have the privilege to be able to vote at the age of 18, and studies have proven that many young adults do not vote. Voting in this midterm election is crucial, and it could change the direction in which the country runs. Become educated on who the candidates are. Go phone banking as I have with my mother to spread the word to others to vote for the candidates. If you are 18 or older, make sure you are registered to vote so you can exercise the privilege given to you. Do not show up to the polls and just guess and pick a candidate, really read into the political views of these candidates. Every vote counts! The General Election is Tuesday, Nov. 6. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
