Yes, Your Vote Counts

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve heard so many people saying that they don’t believe their vote counts or will make an impact. Therefore, they don’t want to waste their time going to early voting, sending in their absentee, or waiting in line on election day. I am here to inform you that your vote DOES count. It is a bit complicated in the way your vote is put into play, but I am here to help you better understand how you are making an impact during this election and the importance of voting.

When you cast your vote for the President and Vice President, you are casting your vote for your state. Once the votes are counted in your state, your electors will cast their vote for the candidate that received the majority of votes for said state.

Electors: Member of the electoral college.

Electoral College: System which is made up of electors. Each state has a certain number of electors based on their representation in congress. Each of those electors have one vote.

Whichever candidate receives more than half, 270 votes (from 538), wins the Presidential election. Yes, some states have a much larger number of votes than others but it is still very important to cast your vote. If your state doesn’t account for a large number of votes, they still matter. If the election is close, just a few electoral votes could decide the entire election.

According to a study done by the New York Times, 88 million eligible voters never even cast their vote. This accounts for approximately 27% of the U.S. population; including children, ineligible felons and non-citizens residing in the United States. Meaning, the impact of those people not voting, is much greater than 27% of possible votes. These votes could make a drastic impact on the outcome of who becomes our President. We must work together and get those lost votes out this upcoming Tuesday. Your opinion matters, let your voice be heard. Go Vote!

“Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.”

— Franklin D. Roosevelt

The same people wondering why they’re so miserable are the same ones trying to find something negative to say about a free vacation lol. Good things happen to those who are grateful
  • Not gonna lie, both of these pictures bother me a lot and I was tempted to edit and had a lowkey nervous breakdown looking at them and I’m not saying that for disingenuous sympathy “ur perf” comments but bc it’s real and I caught myself and even though we all are projecting curated versions of our lives on here to an extent we can at least make a choice to what degree we participate in fake toxic 🐃💩. Also while some people might not understand why these pictures are so upsetting to me, when you know what your body is capable of and how far below that standard you are I believe it’s completely normal and healthy to be disappointed in yourself and want to do better. But if you’re going to edit your body in pics it should be with diet and exercise not Facetune and filters. So hopefully posting bikini pics will suck less in the summer lol
