The Power To Change The Country Is In Our Hands

With mid-term elections a mere two weeks away, I thought I'd dedicate this post to the importance of registering and voting.

The local morning news team mentioned a valuable resource to help me and fellow Alabamians with this years voting selections. Alabama Votes is a useful website that assists voters with everything from how to register, how to locate a polling place to seeing the sample ballot. You can even see the campaign contributions of the candidates.

While I know this does very little to help those of you in other states, a quick trip to Google will help you locate the (dot) gov voting website for your state, where you can access similar information.

Take the time NOW to research the candidates and their platforms to make the best possible choice. Those who DON'T vote have no room to complain when things start to roll down Capitol Hill.

Remember the power to change our country is in our own hands.
