Reports of a “Light Turnout”

voter receipt

Election Day.  No students at school.  No lines to vote.  Many people stayed home from the polls today.

I heard the comments, “it’s a done deal.”    “Why bother?”      “My vote won’t make a difference in the outcome” “It’s already decided”

The 19th Amendment  (Women’s Right to Vote) was ratified in 1920.

Even if you’re frustrated with politics, exasperated with politicians or feel powerless to affect change, it’s important to exercise your right to cast your ballot. In many places in the world, you’re denied this opportunity.
