Vote 2018 Sticker and the Meaning
There’s a lot happening in 2018 and this mid term vote is quickly approaching. There’s so much to know and so much to consider. We hope to provide some insight in this blog, without swaying one way or another, politically. Most of the voting will take place on Tuesday, November 6th. In order to understand our political system and the importance of why everyone should vote let’s start with the basics.
Why do we vote on Tuesday?
This is a tradition that began in 1845, when life was a lot simpler. Back then, farmers needed time to travel to their voting offices and Tuesday was a day that didn’t interfere with the Biblical Sabbath or the Market day, traditionally on a Wednesday in many towns.
Who or what are we voting for?
All 435 seats of the House of Representatives, 39 Governors and 35 Senate seats are what and who we are voting for in this election. There are also a handful of local and city elections for Mayor and other official elect positions around the country.
Why does this matter?
Currently the Republicans hold the majority of Senate seats with 43 while the Democrats hold 24 positions. This vote will determine the position and political party of 31 additional Senate seats. This means the Republicans or the Democrats could take control of the Senate after this election.
How do I know how to vote?
There are 3 ways to vote and this is determined by which state you live in. The majority of the states have voting by mail and by person as options. While only a few states voting in person only, like Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Indiana and West Virginia. Even fewer states are only allowed to vote by mail. Those states include Washington, Oregon and Colorado.
The purpose of our “VOTE 2018” sticker is to simply remind everyone to vote in this election, no matter what your political beliefs are. It’s one of our rights as American’s. It validates our opinions and helps shape our country. If you don’t vote or participate in the elections process, then you really don’t have any right to be discontent with how your elected officials conduct their day to day business and obligations to the public in which they are meant to serve.
Recently, we were contacted by Cosmopolitan Magazine regarding our design for this sticker and they wanted to feature it in the late September issue. We are thrilled that this sticker has caught the eye of an internationally famous publication. They get it. The message is simple. Vote. It’s what makes us American and gives us the right to have input and weight on how we are to grow this country. We are still a very young country and have many things to learn and change in order to bring peace to the world. Voting is the beginning of this process. This sticker is a friendly reminder to everyone of legal age to vote! It’s also a reminder to the next generation of how important voting is.
