Kaylin’s Take: Why You Should Take Part in The 2020 Election
November 3rd is truly an important day for all of us. It's the day when we exercise our right as American citizens and vote.
My first time voting, I remember how exhilarating it was. I remember registering to vote. I remember constantly going over in my head what my beliefs and values are. What I thought needed to change, what I thought was working out well.
Millions of Americans think the same things: that their vote doesn't matter, or that voting isn't worth the time, or even that them not voting won't make that much of a difference. Sometimes, it's even as simple as not knowing who they should be voting for, or not supporting any of the candidates that are running to be elected.
Did you know that in any given election, between 35 and 60 percent of eligible voters don’t cast a ballot?
I, too, sometimes question if who I plan on voting for is the right person for the job. Am I making the right choice for my future, my family's future, the future of my future children?
There is a resource out there for you if you're not sure who to vote for, because I can see (especially this year) how you might not know.

This election is so important for the future of our world.
We are less than a week away from finding out the results and you have a say in what happens. You can vote early, you can vote on election day. But the most important thing here is simply, to vote.
