19th Amendment & First-Time Voters

September 8, 2020

Whether you were born in a post-9/11 era or just became a U.S. citizen like me, this is our time to ask questions and let our voices be heard by casting our ballot. Also, what better year to vote than 2020, the 100th Anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment!

When asking some of my first-time voter friends their opinion on the 2020 elections, most of them answered: “How do I even register how to vote?” “I don’t like politics. Why does this concern me?”

I must say voting is pretty cool.

So, I hope to see you post your pictures with your “I voted” sticker on social media and share them with your friends and family. Don’t forget that every single vote counts, including yours.
