Canada goes to the polls on Monday. This is no way foreign interference but to encourage my Canadian friends to choose who will lead your nation into the future. My hope is that you will vote your values of fairness, inclusion, love and kindness. I hope you will choose wisely and make your vote count. I will be monitoring the election online via Twitter and other sources. Vote!
Today is an election day in the state of Tennessee. Local races will be decided. There are primary races for Governor and Senator on the ballot today. As a citizen its ones responsibility to make your voice heard by your vote. Democracy makes your choice possible. The weather where I am is a little messy but it won’t stop me from making my way to the polls. So if you are in Tennessee you have until 8 PM this evening, go vote!
It’s election day in Tennessee. We are voting on state primaries and county general races and federal primaries. Voting is an important part of every democracy. Today’s voting leads up to the general election in the Fall when we elect a new president in the United States.
I am a Democrat and I have been waiting for this for awhile. Without the Hillary v. Bernie thing it’s important to know how much is at stake in this election. It’s always good to be informed. Most importantly you have to vote to have your voice.
The people of the United Kingdom are going to the polls today to decide whether or not to stay in the European Union. It’s a decision that has local, national and global implications on every level. Citizenship in Europe clears hurdles for UK citizens to do a lot of things in other countries in the union which works for and against the country.There is also the economic considerations for both Britain and the rest of the continent.
Granted, I don’t have a vote in this but I think the UK is better together with Europe. Perhaps some adjustments could be made to give a little more independence on some issues important to the country. Overall, it needs to be what is best for the citizens of all involved.
To all my Canadian friends, I encourage you to go to the polls. You have a great country and your voice matters. Voting is important in all countries that exercise the right. The future is in your hands.
