Today marks the date of the first debate scheduled between the two main candidates for Presidents of the United States. I will be watching it because I believe voting is an important part of my volunteer duties in exercising my right to choose who I think would be the best candidate to lead this country for the next four years.
If you are one of the hundreds of thousands of students that just moved into a different area to attend college, it will be hard for you to exercise this same right and vote in the state you are registered. Considering the current high gas prices, traveling home may be too difficult for many of these students.
But your vote can still count! Please take the time to fill out an absentee ballot for your state. This website, http://www.govoteabsentee.org/ makes it really simple for you to fill out your vote. This site takes you through 4 easy steps to help you ensure that your vote counts this election season, which some have said to be the most important election.
So Watch the debate(s), make your decision and cast your absentee vote!
