Five Reasons To Register and VOTE Nov. 6

October 22, 2018
Today, Monday Oct. 22, is the last day for Californians to register online to vote in the midterm elections Tuesday Nov. 6. After that, you can still vote but you need to do so in person. And if all else fails, show up at a polling place and ask for a provisional ballot.
And why is it so important to register and to vote?

Millions of Americans support public lands and we are being ignored. Millions of Americans hike, hunt, fish, and camp on our public lands. Our public lands also provide 66 million Americans with drinking water.

To help save our democracy we MUST elect leaders who listen to we the people.

In the 2014 midterm elections, only 36% — about one third — of the eligible voters showed register, showed up, and voted. That’s the lowest turnout since 1942 — when World War II was going on.

If we don’t vote, we don’t have a chance.

I understand why, during World War II, it would have been hard to vote. We were at war.

But today there is a war going on too — a war waged against people and planet for profit.

We must show up.

 

For a primer on who to vote for, check this post out.

So why should you vote?

There are a multitude of reasons but here are five on my mind today that matter immensely:

 

  • Three: where to even start? does this image convey it all? How did someone accused of sexual assault get on to the Supreme Court? How did someone who BRAGS about sexual assault get elected to the White House? WTF is the GOP doing messing with women’s reproductive health? And yes, I do think this relates to point #2!

  • Four: Address pollution, on sea and on land;  we  can ban fracking and take plastic pollution seriously. This is of course related to the #1 problem of climate change.
  • Five, there’s the inequality of our economy which you can read about in this article from Scientific American and being Scientific American you can imagine there’s plenty of charts and graphs to explain the science and the numbers but here’s two — and yes, if you ask me IT’S ALL RELATED :
  • The American Economy Is Rigged And what we can do about it
