So I’m a not-so-secret political junky. Politics is fascinating as it touches our lives on a daily basis. Primary elections are being held today in Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Wisconsin. They’re important as they will determine the party candidates for general elections.
At a young age, my mom drilled into my head the importance of voting. She repeated the mantra that it was our duty as U.S. citizens to exercise our freedom of speech and vote. It’s a powerful declaration to proclaim your choice. So I’ve compiled a few links to aid you before you go out to the polls.
