I am here to encourage you to learn about your candidates both national and local and make an informed decision on voting day. When I tell people they should vote I often get the response "well my vote doesn't matter". Yes it does! While the electoral college is not a perfect system it does allow all of us to weigh in our votes to make the differences we want to happen. I am not here to sway your vote one way or the other, merely to encourage you to do so.

You can view Mitt Romney's (Republican) site here: http://www.mittromney.com
These are the two main contenders, although many others are running. Take the time to read up on these men and how they vote on taxes, gun control, economy, immigration, LGBT issues, religion, abortion, energy, war, national security, civil liberties, etc. Not just what they say but what they do. Their choices will undoubtedly effect all of us and we should never take that lightly.
So if you are considering skipping going to the polls, I really encourage you to take the time to read up on these men, your local propositions, and get down to those voting booths to make your vote count. Voting day is November 6, 2012.
