Even if you believe in something entirely different than I do, vote. VOTE. VOTE. VOTE!
Throwback to one of my favorite Halloween’s ever, in 2007 when my little monster was happy to play Dracula as long as we didn’t use blood anywhere. And as usual, my mother was happy to take whatever silly photo we asked of her.
Whether you vote on November 3, by absentee ballot, or by one-stop early voting–even if you and I cancel each other out at the poll–you need to VOTE. In North Carolina, early voting starts today (October 15) and runs through October 31. Check out the North Carolina State Board of Elections for information regarding where you can vote early, if that’s your jam.
Since I didn’t raise a lemming, and our son is awake, aware, and active, I thought I’d share a couple photos he captured over the last few months for WUNC of Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Amy Klobuchar; the 2020 Raleigh Women’s March, and moments from the Raleigh protests in May and in August. Vote for what’s happening in the world. Vote for what you want the future to look like. Vote your conscience. Vote because it’s your right, and your privilege. Just vote.
Sending a 21-Pi salute to our adventurous son … what an exciting 21 years!
