EARLY VOTING IS NOW- EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT

Early voting has begun, and every vote is so critical. I know that many people think their vote does not count. In the year 2000, Democratic nominee Al Gore lost the electoral college vote to George W Bush.  The election, in its entirety, came down to a re-count in Florida.  

Bush had won the popular vote by such a small margin that it triggered an automatic recount and a Supreme Court case titled Bush vs. Gore. In the end, Bush won Florida by a margin of .009% of the votes cast in the state or 537 votes. If 600 more Democrats had voted that year in Florida, the election would have been completely different and possibly, the course of history.  

More recently, Donald Trump defeated Hilary Clinton in 2016 by securing a close electoral college margin of votes. Although the election was not as close as the Gore /Bush election, it was an extraordinarily close race. In fact, Hilary Clinton won the national popular vote by almost 3,000,000 votes. However, the concentration of Trump voters in states with more electoral votes called “swing” states, like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan brought him an electoral college win to secure the presidency. 

Every vote is critical because every state matters and the votes in your state are independent for electoral college votes. Although I am personally in great disagreement with the modern use of the electoral college and believe that an overall popular vote of the United States should determine our president, that is not the current system under which we live and it will take a constitutional amendment to change that. However, in the meantime, every vote counts because recent elections have been extraordinarily close. Your right to express your opinion is fundamental and sacred in this nation.   Thousands of men and women have lost their lives in wars for the past 200 years to maintain our freedoms. The right to vote is the most fundamental freedom that we as Americans exercise.

In my lifetime, this is the most divided I have ever seen our nation and the only way to bring change is for everyone to express their opinion and exercise their rights. Participating in our elections is a fundamental and sacred freedom of American life.  There are many nations and countries in the world where their citizens do not have the same freedom. No matter what candidate you support or where your political alliances lie, it is incumbent upon you as an American to exercise your right to vote. There have been thousands of people that have fought, protested, marched, and worked so hard for you to have the privilege.

 Early voting has begun in the state of Nevada and below is a list of polling places where you can exercise your right between now and October 30. Check locations below and the dates to locate the most convenient place for you to vote. Early voting is critical because it allows a more accurate accounting of votes.  By early voting you can protect yourself and other voters to help cut down on any crowding at the voting polls and make this a safer election for everyone. You can choose to mail in your vote now or go to the most convenient polling place near you.

 Make a plan as to when you will be going and review your early ballot that you received in the mail. It is important to remember that it is not only the presidential election you are voting to elect.  There are dozens of candidates for many local positions on the ballot. It is important to do your research,  ask friends and neighbors about candidates you do not know or research online in order to make an informed choice. It is never a good idea to just vote for anyone if you do not know who the candidates are on the ballot. It is better to skip those elections or just put none of these and move on. Sometimes non-qualified judges and other state political posts get elected because people failed to do research and just picked a name on the ballot. Do not fall into that trap.  It is important to know that if you do not know the candidates in each election you can simply skip that or put none of these and move on. Make a plan, offer to take elderly friends or neighbors to the polls.   Together we can exercise our rights.
