This week, September 28, we celebrated National Voter Registration Day. The spirit of democracy has filled me and I want every El Pasoan to know how to exercise their right to vote.
Fall is voting season
It’s that time of year again when elections will be upon us in no time in November, and you only have one month to register. In 2020, over 30% of the population did not vote, which means a third of you shouldn’t be complaining when you don’t like how things are or if our government is working.
Participation is the only way it works
A functioning democracy only works when everyone who has the right exercises their right to vote, otherwise the system simply does not work. I think it’s important to remember that the ability to vote was not only given to us, but was fought by people of all faiths, colors, genders and religions. If that doesn’t hit you in the sensations, you probably didn’t cry by the end of Old Yeller and you are a freak.
Get informed, get involved
If your vote means something to you, educate yourself and become active, check where your local polling stations are, research issues and who your municipal representative is, and don’t take for granted the hundreds of volunteers who help organize. our local elections. job!
Check your local and national requirements
Each state has different requirements. So if you’ve recently moved, make sure you know the requirements for where you live. Make your vote count. Visit www.nationalvoterregistrationday.org to learn more.
