Y’all, it’s voting season! Whoop! Not gonna lie, I’ve never been one to do my research when it came to voting. Not for any local elections, primaries, or the presidential election. But the current climate of America has kinda given me a totally new perspective to my voice and my influence.

The upcoming election is a primary (for VA, it’s on June 23rd), which means we’re voting for a candidate to move on to the presidential election in November. Like me, I bet you’re a little nervous about the fate of our democracy. If 2020 has done one thing, it’s opened the eyes of the privileged (i.e. white people) and it’s a wake-up call that making waves. It’s about damn time!

Something that I am just learning, in my 35 years of life, is that my voice matters. And because of what’s happening now, at the national level right, the solution has to begin in our own towns. Voting in all elections – general, congressional, state, and local elections MATTER. Voting in those “small” election can change the political landscape, y’all!? But we have to make informed decisions and this doesn’t necessarily mean siding with a political party. It’s super important to have an understanding of the issues that are important to you then do your research. Ask yourself, ‘what candidates align with your values?’ and go from there.

BallotReady.org offers voter guides by home address nationwide. I think it’s pretty cool that you can save your choices online, print or email your personalized ballot, and bring it with you to the polls! USA.gov is another great resource to get informed. You can find information on just about anything that relates to government services. So, there’s no excuse ya’ll. FYI – in most states, the deadline to register to vote is in October. For Virginia, it’s October 12th so get to it if you need to get that in order. Register here.

Your Vote Counts!
