The Single Most Powerful Action: Voting

Written by Helen Whelan

"Four years ago, only 36 percent of Americans cast ballots in the midterm elections. Had more people showed up, the Senate may well have remained in Democratic control, Mitch McConnell would not be the majority leader and Judge Merrick Garland would now be Justice Garland. In the days and months ahead, remember this."  NYT's Editorial Board

What's the word: "startling," sad, infuriating, demoralizing"?  64% of eligible voters did NOT vote in the last mid-term election!  When you think of how much your life is affected on a daily basis by the rights enforced or not by the U.S. Supreme Court like the right (or not) to have an abortion or the right not be politically discriminated against based on your religion, race or sex, or, the laws passed or not to increase/decrease spending for -- you name it-- defense, Social Security, medicare,etc.  The list really goes on and on.  What are you waiting for?
