Election 2012: Let Your Voice Be Heard, Get Out & Vote!!!

I can’t stress enough, how important it is to vote! Regardless, of your party affiliation you have been given the right to vote! Exercise your right! Don’t sit back and complain about the issues if you aren’t willing to take the time to vote! We take the time to shop, text, go to the club and whatever else; so I’m sure giving up a few hours of your time to vote tomorrow won’t hurt!

And just so you know I practice what I preach, I early voted!

For those of you in Corporate America check out my girl The Cubicle Chick’s post  for your voting rights as an employee!

For all my fellow Illinois Residents go here to get more info, for those out-of-state go to your Local Board of Elections site today!
