In these times it is more critical than ever that every eligible person in this country votes, but that is not enough.
As my cousin said three years ago, “it is no longer enough to just vote. We have to do more.”
We have to actively participate in our democracy. We have to volunteer to move the candidates or issues we believe in forward. We have to attend meetings, make calls, knock on doors, educate our fellow Americans.
We have to make sure that the people running our states and our country reflect the values and morals of the majority of us.
I took his words to heart, and volunteer at the local political office of my choice. I hope you will as well, and keep volunteering after the election. This is too important to not get correct.
