A cartoon I made for the #GoVote campaign.
Plan ahead for your HOT DATE this TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH and GO VOTE! Don’t know your poll site location or hours? Check here.
Please spread the word to your friends — better yet, make it fun! Go together, hang out, celebrate and make your voice heard. People have fought and died for this power, the right to vote, the ability to effect political and social change. Please don’t waste it!
Edited to add: I’m happy that this is raising discussion, especially regarding the electoral college system. And yes, in response to a comment, I completely agree you should look it up, thoroughly — regardless of whether you think it’s a good thing or bad thing (and yes, this is a hot topic), the fact remains that it’s what we’ve got at the moment… Yes, the electoral college does give disproportionate weight to voters in smaller states, and focuses attention on the handful of swing states. WHICH MAKES YOUR VOTE ALL THE MORE IMPORTANT — in the swing states obviously, where your vote can actually make or break an election… And even in other states, to show your support and take part in history and the fundamental workings of our society!
