Before you watch this video, it may be NSFW as I chose the uncensored version (mild language). I feel it’s important to hear people speak in their own words on important topics such as this.
These are very serious times we are living in, and everyone’s voice deserves to be heard. Your voice. In many parts of the world, you wouldn’t have a voice at all. But, as improbable as it seems, many Americans do not take their right to vote seriously, and often ignore it altogether.
If you don’t have 5 minutes to watch this piece here are some highlights:
1) You NEED to vote
2) You must be registered to vote, and there is a deadline which varies per state. Some deadlines are as soon as Oct. 4. You just can’t show up on election day and be part of it.
3) If you haven’t registered, check out http://maps.google.com/vote to get an interactive map. This will tell you, based on your address, not only where you can register, but how much longer you have to do it.
