Voting Made Easy

There are pros and cons to the different voting methods, but make sure to follow the directions so that your vote will count.

Last night during dinner we discussed the voting that will be taking place in November. We were discussing which would be better, voting by mail or going to the voter place, which one person said she likes to go to no matter what the weather is like. 

The person who said she likes to go to the voters place does so because she can meet other people and discuss who to vote for before she votes. She then likes to sit, if they let her, in a chair outside of the voting place, and see who comes out after they vote. She went on to say that she sees many friends that she hasn’t seen all year. 

The other two said that they love to vote by mail because they can take their time to vote. They don’t have to take time off from work and they can discuss, with friends, who or what to vote for. No one is rushing them to vote and if you are in the armed services you still can vote for a president. But there also problems voting by mail. 

If you don’t follow directions your vote will not count. For example, if you do not sign the back of the envelope, your vote may not count. If you vote for two persons and the directions say to vote for one person, your vote will not count. Lastly, you must mail it back on time. 

If you decide not to vote by mail, you can go to your voting place and give them your mail in voter package and they will let you vote. 

If you did not vote in the national elections, you must re-register to vote. 

Just remember it’s your right, if you meet the qualifications, to vote for a president this November.
