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!
