So it’s that time of year where Americans can make their voices heard. I know most don’t understand the power of our vote. But we can vote for changes within our communities. A lot of us have been denied this privilege, and our ancestors fought for our rights to vote and make our voice heard. So why not vote?
In June of this year voters were asked to go to voters booth for the New Jersey primaries. Sadly New Jersey reported the lowest voter turn out in 90 years. We can not complain about the system unless we start putting the right people in office who have the voice of the public in mind. The only way the public will have a voice is by making themselves heard at the voting booth. BE HEARD AND GO VOTE.
