The Right to Vote

And WHY will I be receiving a ballot in the mail in October, filling it out (the WHOLE thing people!) and mailing it back in?

Well, that would be because:

On Aug. 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, guaranteeing women the right to vote, was declared in effect. And here is the rest of it.

A few years ago I didnt vote much, I thought things would turn out the same whether I voted or not. Then I learned that wasnt true, and certainly wasnt the point. My vote is as important as anyone elses, and i'm very proud to have the right to help make a change, especially now. Too many people have had to struggle because of the last few years. I will use my vote to help make that change we desperately need.
