Election Day is right around the corner– Tuesday, November 6th to be exact.
Some are calling this the most important midterm election in decades, but do young people understand the magnitude? Will the young voters head to the polls?

The Republicans currently hold the majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Voter turnout is usually low in non-presidential election years.
A high midterm turnout generally is bad news for the president’s party.

Again, we are not trying to telling you to vote; and this is a very good first step. Again, we are not trying to telling you to vote; That’s always an option, up to you, but just being able to show that you have the interest and the desire to be a part of your community, which is always good in my book.”
