Your Vote Counts

bernie-sanders-campaign-button

My feet are still hurting from pounding the pavement Saturday and Sunday. For the first time in my life, I went door-to-door canvassing for the candidate I support. My door-knocking partner has been canvassing since before I was born. Such dedication makes me feel terribly guilty that I haven’t done my part before.

I’ve been a registered voter since the age of eighteen, but my participation in the democratic process has been limited to major elections (President, Senate, Governor, etc.). I’ve got to do better. I need to be more active in my community. I need to listen more, learn more, and volunteer to help.

In New Hampshire, we have the privilege and great responsibility of voting in the Presidential primary tomorrow. Citizens in other states will flock to the voting booths in the weeks to come.

For those of you who have become cynical, who believe your vote doesn’t count, or who think all politicians are the same, I beg you to vote anyway. Your vote does count. You matter. Nothing will change unless you make it happen.

  1. I admire your work. I’ve hung a sign in the window, donated some $ (not much), and went to the Caucus, which I can never spell :p But yes, I agree, I need to get more involved, too and I admire you for doing it!
