There’s only one thing that you must do today- vote.
Please do not let this thing fall off your list today. Call in sick, take your kids with you, drive instead of bike- this matters.
Some people say “it’s rigged” or “my vote doesn’t matter” or “I refuse to participate in a system that is broken.” Fine, perhaps, but- your participation only makes it less broken, and most of the things on your ballot (like your local officials) actually do depend on a handful of votes. Skip the national election if you really must (I would still prefer you didn’t), but there are people in your community that are fighting damn hard to work for you, and they’ve earned your support, I guarantee it.
If you don’t know where to vote- here.
If you don’t have time to research a candidate, email me with a phone number and I will call you and help you.
Think, and participate.
