Vote! It's your right.

Here's an interesting read from Feministing. I won't be redundant in re-stating and pointing out all the "not-ok" aspects of election sexism.

I will say that it is very important to register to vote and then to ACTUALLY VOTE. It is our right. To all the women: we fought hard to earn the right...let's exercise it!

If we don't take part in the political process, elected officials will ignore our issues/rights. Let's show them we care.

Last day to register to vote: October 12th
Last day to submit a mail-in ballot: October 26th
ELECTION DAY: November 2nd
