The top three issues that absolutely matter to me are health care, Medicaid and disability rights. I’ll talk about this more and more in future posts. What issues matter most to you? What candidates do you think will support or protect the issues that matter most to you?
I’ve taken the time to learn more about the candidates I support in several ways. Here are some things you can do to learn more about the candidates and to get involved:
- Learn more and support your candidate online. Check out the candidate’s web sites and follow them on social media.
- Attend online Town Halls or virtual Info Sessions. I like to attend virtual Town Halls to learn where candidates stand on the issues. I’ve asked questions about how they will protect disability services and healthcare. Attend these sessions and ask your questions.
- Volunteer for a campaign. I’ve volunteered for literature drops. There are lots of things you can do to help out a candidate. Check your candidates’ websites to sign up to volunteer.
- Donate. I don’t have much, but I’ve donated what I can to help out the candidates I support.
- VOTE! This year, find out how to vote early by mail or in person. Whatever works best for you to make sure your vote is in!
So, learn about where the candidates stand on the issues that matter most to you. Get involved and help the candidates you support. Don’t sit it out. Do what you can to help out!
Finally, and most importantly, go to vote.org or your state’s Secretary of State’s Office to find out what you need to do to vote. For my fellow Minnesotans, you can find out more info on voting and the election at the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website Want a fun way to figure out what you need to do in your state to vote?
