I’m not a huge fan of politics creeping onto Tumblr, but this is about Wisconsin. If you live in Wisconsin, please, please, please go vote TODAY. YOUR VOTE COUNTS. It does. I promise, it does.
This vote today determines the governor of Wisconsin and determines in the United States what a governor can and cannot do. Scott Walker has had free reign in his one year in office, diminishing women’s and minorities’ rights and severely decreasing funding for education. Not to mention in his time in office, we have lost more jobs than any other state in the U.S.
Again, please vote. If you took every person who says “my vote doesn’t count” or “I don’t know enough about it,” you would have a sizable population that could turn the recall either way. As a citizen of the United States, it’s your responsibility to use your right to vote. Especially if you are a woman - suffragettes fought endlessly for your right to vote so EXERCISE THIS RIGHT.
*If you are not registered to vote, remember that you can register AT THE POLLS. Bring your driver’s license!
(I’m not sure how many of my followers are from WI, so if you are and are old enough to vote, let me know that you voted!)
