Westin’s thoughts about voting.
I know you’re busy. I know it is frustrating to “not be as informed as I should be.”
I know some of you don’t like talking or thinking about politics. I know a lot of
politicians are slimy.
I know it seems like your vote really doesn’t matter.
I also know that’s total crap.
The decisions that are made by politicians we elect will affect us for the rest of our lives.
Don’t let yourself be affected by something over which you had no control.
Don’t be afraid. Be informed.
Oh, and register to vote here.
