It begins again. The opportunity to make your voice be heard began on October 5.
The state of Ohio advocates early voting for this U.S. Midterm election. Are you going to vote?
It's really important.
Seriously, it's important.
These elections are very important for the determination of who controls state governorships and federal office.
There's about 36 governorships on the line and Republicans have a big stake in the elections.
The Democrats have a razor thin majority in the U.S, Senate and there's 33 senate seats up for this election with the majority being in the South. All 435 congressional seats along with the four delegates from the U.S. territories are up for reelection. The Resident Commissioner for Puerto Rico (an elected U.S. Representative who serves four years) will be up in 2016.
Republicans have a chance to take back the U.S. Senate and win full control of Congress.
The Democrats may have a chance to unseat unpopular Republican governors. It's matter up to you to change the demographics.
Of course, I want you to know that you have to be 18 to vote. You have to have a valid identification.
You have to make sure you know where you local polling station is?
Ex-felons are allowed to vote in Ohio. You must register to vote.
I know the talk and quite frankly, I don't want to hear it. I want you to know that a vote can change the dynamics of this country.
My ancestors fought and died for the right to vote. I don't want to disappoint my family by not turning out to vote.
