I’m sure that you are all aware of the long standing battle between our two most popular democratic candidates for the presidential nomination.
If you aren’t aware of what happened in Guam, Obama won by 7 votes. SEVEN. Today I think we as voters and as young people sometimes don’t feel that our vote is important. I know that in the end Guam’s delegates will probably not be the deciding factor, but if those seven people had not gone to the polls that day, there would be a different winner.
So, I just want to encourage all of you to take responsibility, get informed about the candidates and go vote. Don’t just be informed about the presidential candidates either, because there are other important names on the ballot, like those running for positions in the Senate and House of Representatives. These people have policies and beliefs that will affect your everyday lives.
When we were younger we relied on our parents to make those responsible decisions. Now it is our turn. For some of us, it is our first chance to vote. Take the time to do it.
