Hello KG Crew! How is everyone feeling as the days get closer to the 2020 Election? I’m sure you all have been seeing the commercials, having heavy conversations with family & friends, & scrolling through all the social media propaganda just as much as I have! The time is here for us to cast our votes & Kindness Gems wanted to check-in! Make sure you all have a plan to VOTE and YOU are ready to make your voice heard by Nov. 3rd.
The 2020 Election is going to be one of the most influential elections in the history of our country. Every vote matters. It matters both for the health of the American political system and to the people who participate in it. You are given the right to make a choice that affects the quality of life for yourself and future generations. You are given a chance to stand up for issues you care about such as climate change, healthcare, and those involving the economy. Please do not think that your single vote cannot count in the sea of millions of voters. In 2016, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in a tight race with the Electoral College Vote. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote with over 3 million votes, yet the concentration of Trump’s votes in some states allowed him to take the win. In the last election almost 46.9% of 231,556,622 eligible voters did not vote; let’s work together to make that statistic lower in the 2020 Election!
What’s at stake in the 2020 Election? The issues at hand include:
The Supreme Court
The BLM Movement
You have the power to make a difference. Make a plan to vote: register to vote, check your registration, find your polling place, request an absentee ballot, sign up for election reminders. & Most importantly, please be sure to make your voice heard - VOTE!
