It's this simple: We turn out, we win. We stay home, we lose. With that in mind, have you resolved to vote yet? I hope you have. If not, what can I do to convince you?
Your part doesn't have to be as big. If it's intimidating to stand up to elected officials in person, you have the opportunity to stand up to them at the ballot box in November. If you are uncomfortable knocking on doors and canvassing strangers for a candidate, you can still talk to your friends and family about why it's so important to vote this year.
Over the past few weeks, you may have heard some chatter in the media that the anticipated "Blue Wave" that could overtake Congress this election is sputtering and will be nothing but a washout by the time Election Day arrives. Or maybe you've heard that an all-out tsunami alert is in effect. What can we expect?
