The debates are done. The candidates’ messages have been delivered. There’s only one thing left to do: Vote. I voted for the first time in the last presidential election. My absentee ballot never came in, but I was so excited to vote for the first time that I decided to take a midnight bus from New York City to Baltimore to be in my district on Election Day.

Encouraging, huh? I thought so then, and I still feel inspired every time I look at these pictures. These groups represent the many individuals who understand the importance of exercising their right to vote. The election this November, and every coming election, are no different. The choice we make today matters greatly to our future and to the future of this great country. Make sure your voice is heard. Whom you vote for is up to you, but make the right choice by choosing to vote!

Respectfully,
