Midterms are tomorrow! PLEASE VOTE!

Posted by

Good morning, EVERYONE! I know there might be some of you who might be wondering why I am doing a blog post about voting but tomorrow is election day in the US and a significant number of our readers are from the US. So, here I am!!!!

Tomorrow is a big day. Many of us are going to spend all day tomorrow staring at a number of screens as our anxieties build and we wonder if there is any hope left. I know that for the most part, anyone who is reading this and can vote, will be voting and anyone who is reading this and isn’t planning on voting will unlikely to be swayed by this post but in the face of extreme helplessness, I feel like this is the least I can do. 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, if you can vote, please do so. It is important not just for your town, city, county, state or country. It is important that you vote for the world. Think I am exaggerating? I am not. I wish I was, but I am not. The people you vote for have a say in a number of policies that would determine the US’s stance on key global issues (like climate change) and determine the kind of relationships the US has with the world around it. 

Here are a couple reminders:

-If you’re in line before the poll closes, don’t leave the line! You’re allowed to vote!

-If for whatever reason, your name isn’t on the voter roll or is spelled differently, you are allowed to ask for a provisional ballot! THEY CANNOT STOP YOU FROM VOTING.

There are tons and tons and tons of other helpful information out there if you need it but I thought the above two reminders were especially important. If I can help supplement any info, please let me know! I am rooting for the world and hoping civilization as we know it doesn’t crumble.

Rashika has been tired since 2013. There are very few things that spark joy for her besides a nice cup of tea, warm, baked goods, good books and good TV shows. She is here to pile onto your giant TBRs and to-watch lists. Offer her a cookie and she might be nice to you.

    Thank you Rashika/Giselle. I’m a British citizen living in Ireland and can assure you that these mid-terms are being watched, worldwide, by those who care about our planet, about equality, human rights, animal rights, billion-dollar arms deals and just honest-to-goodness decency and kindness to one other.

    Thank you so much for this post, Rashika! Voting is so, so, SO important. I’ve thrown so many hours of my life into getting out the vote for Stacey Abrams and other Georgia Democrats this election, and I really hope it pays off. (I also voted early last week!) It’s one of the only ways we have to affect the kinds of changes we want to see. Here’s hoping the numbers rolling in tomorrow night will be good ones. <3
