While we’ve kept up our blog posts on a regular (usually 3 times a week a www.TheMariaSanchezShow.com) basis, we’ve taken some time away from the website and the podcasts to focus on some other professional opportunities, political campaigns and family matters. It is terribly important that if you are a registered voter that you vote on Tuesday, November 4th. I’ve been fairly political most of my life. I was always the President of my class or a Student Body Officer while in high school and pretty much the same scenario in college when I attended and graduated from the University of California, Davis.
As an adult, I registered at the age of 18 and feel that our votes count. One of my favorite personal mottos is, “one voice, one vote, one pay check.” What say, what we do, how we spend our money and how we vote matters! I think far too often people feel that it is one vote, what could it possibly matter?
Well it does. Whether we agree politically or not really isn’t the point. That we participate in the process of our democracy and go to the polls is really more important.
Our representatives in our state capitals and in the corridors of Washington, D.C. need to be there because the majority of the people voted and thus our leaders represent the majority of the electorate. That seems pretty straightforward to me.
Unfortunately, what we’ve seen in the past is that the minority of people show up, mostly the extremists of both parties and thus they elect the exception or the more polarizing candidate.
So please, whatever you do, V-O-T-E on Tuesday!
If you have an absentee ballot and you haven’t mailed it yet, BRING IT IN PERSON to your polling place. The postmark does NOT count! It has to be received on or before November 4th so don’t trust it to the USPS at this point. Hold on to it and take it to your polling place.
