Don’t be a Dope. Early Vote!

Hello fellow Raleighites. If you are anything like me you care about who is in charge of your local community. Leaders matter so you want to elect somebody that best represents the interests of you, your loved ones and your community. Unfortunately, politics have warped elections into an almost unrecognizable process that is designed to make the people confused, disconnected and apathetic. This year is no different however it is no less critical that as many people go out and vote as possible. There are more limitations, fewer ways to register and less options when it comes to where you can vote but the more people vote, the higher the likelihood someone who embodies the interest of the majority are elected.

Communities are families and should be treated as such. Imagine if you could vote for a family member to be in charge of your household. This person would make decisions regarding your family’s healthcare, finances and social engagements. Would you leave it up to strangers to decide who would make these decisions? Would you want people who have a completely different set of ideals, privilege and view of the world to dig their hands into your bank account, decide what doctors your Mom can go to or limit what decisions your daughters could make about their own bodies? Hell no. So don’t.

There may be limitations but there is still plenty of room and space for all of us to break through any challenges to go out and vote. Don’t wait until the last minute. Early voting locations are stationed all around the city. They are open through November 1st from 11AM – 7Pm Monday through Friday and 9AM – 1PM on Saturday. Your family and your community matter. Get out and choose a representative that means something to you.
