Get out there and VOTE, people!!!

Yeah, you. Don’t make me come over there and drag you out of your house. I don’t care how snowy/rainy/cold/hot/foggy/whatever it is. Get your dupa* into that booth.

When I lived in Costa Rica, it was inspiring to see how dedicated people were when it came to casting their ballots. They knew they were fortunate to have fair elections (in comparison to their neighbors) and how important it was to make their voice known. “Su voto es su voz.” (Your vote is your voice.) Votes were cast with indelible ink thumbprints—people would proudly sport their blue thumbs for days.

Honestly, I just have no tolerance for voter apathy. And as an Illinoisan, I’m so proud to have two strong local choices on the ballot.

Sincerely, Blue State Gal
