Election Day. Your voice matters!

Happy Election Day in the USA. Today, America votes for a President, the entire House of Representatives, and one third of the Senate. In all 50 states, there are additional ballot initiatives on everything from gambling to schools to same-sex marriage to taxes.

If you haven’t informed yourself about the choices in your voting booth today, I hope you’ll do so. Then, if you’re of legal age and registered, go and vote!

I don’t usually make a big deal out of this kind of thing, but I will just this once. Listen… men and women have died to provide us with and protect our ability as a nation to determine our own destiny. Around the world, people still sacrifice their lives fighting for the same right we’ve had for over 200 years (though for women, it’s only been 92 years, I think).

We may not always like the outcomes on Election Day. But at least we get the opportunity to make our own choices. And the opportunity to make more choices in the future. Our right to vote is a precious commodity. Please don’t squander it by staying home.

I’m Stephen, and I’m proud to approve this message.
