What A Clueless Millennial Needs to Know About Voting

 
Amid all the traveling across country right now, and with the United State's presidential elections just around the corner in 25 days, it is hard not to have politics on the brain. Things are really heating up. It can be nerve wrecking and stressful trying to decide what presidential candidate is most worthy of our vote. With all the propaganda and hoopla bombarding us from every which direction, it is hard to know what of it to believe is actually true. Maybe you find yourself totally clueless about all that's going on, or don't know how to get involved?!?

Well, let's change that!

We are truly blessed in this nation to have the privilege and responsibility of getting involved. We need to take advantage of the freedom we have and vote for the presidential candidate we feel will shape our country with the same morals and values that we believe are best.

Does God expect Christians to vote?

Here are 6 of my favorite, reliable, and easy-to-navigate websites about voting and the elections. These helpful sites provide guidance and will equip you with the fundamental facts about each candidate running, and their platforms. Check them out and be transformed into a knowledgeable well-informed voter. 

#1 Vote.org


Vote.org is a very straightforward, easy to use, no-funny-business resource. This website's mission is to increase voter turnout (not ballet turnout ^_^) with it's offered services. On this website you can:
  •  register to vote
  • check your registration status
  •  get your absentee ballot
 fast, free, easy, secure, and nonpartisan. 

#2 Rockthevote.com

This website is similar to vote.org but with a trendy, relevant pop culture edge featuring celebrity endorsement and such.
"Since 1990, Rock the Vote has fused pop culture, music, art & technology to fulfill its mission of building up long-term youth voters to the polls"  - as seen on their website
This site provides information about: 
  • Student Voter Guide
  • When You Can Vote
  • Where You Can Vote
  • Voter Registration

Skimm The Vote is a favorite resource during election season. It offers short, concise, brief summaries about the presidential candidates and their stances. It is also a great resource for receiving condensed updates about your everyday news!
