Today, at some point before 7pm, I will cast my vote in the mid term elections. The state of Georgia is electing a new Govenor and for the past 6 months we have been bombarded with television ads, flyers, social media posts and even text messages encouraging us to vote.
While many people have already casts their votes early and let us all know on their social media accounts, I haven't yet. While I fully intend to vote, I'm not a fan of the early voting process in my city. Well, i'm not a fan of the early voting location in my city. It's too far from me. So I prefer to wait until election day, drive three blocks down the street and cast my vote at the church I attend on Sundays.
For me, voting isn't a choice, right, or privilege. It's a requirement. Sometimes I vote for the candidate I want to win because I align with their beliefs and plans. And sometimes I vote against the candidate I don't want to win. But I always vote. And I try not to judge or bully those that don't because I believe that not voting is a choice, right, and privilege.
