Being prepared to vote, to stand up for your: rights, thoughts, opinions, for those who have no voice. That is what it’s all about. Considering the current state of affairs & all hot topic issues at stake, this round of elections is nothing short of imperative! Hispanics, young voters, EVERYONE who can, should participate! Some would argue that they don’t vote because their choice never wins. Even if your choice doesn’t come out on top, a vote means: allowing your presence to be felt, & numbers most certainly do count. Special attention is dedicated to statistics when it comes to voting. Voting is you saying : “Present!” “I am part of this country too & will not be overlooked , under or falsely represented” We can not sit idly by during the decision-making process then become outraged if unjust or reprehensible laws are passed by inadequate leaders.
