Both Democrats and Republicans have ramped up their get-out-the-vote efforts with the election, now so close. The problem is that midterm elections are historically low. Voter turnout drops, and right now there is not a lot of happiness with the people in the country towards most incumbent politicians.
The Political parties will argue that their candidate is the one best suited for one of the offices and you should fall in step with vote the “party line”. I believe that there have been a lot of terrible lawmakers elected from both parties recently, and they have not served the American people well. That’s not to say that they are all bad, but there are more than enough bad ones that fall into that category.
I Hope you get the chance to vote and have your voice be counted this year. I will be voting with the knowledge and understanding of what each local and national candidate that I choose stands for, what each referendum ballots mean before I ever hit the polls. I will not be falling into a political party’s lockstep. Because from what I have seen lately, both parties are pretty bad and it has not been working well for “We the People”
