Alright people. Tumblr’s (and I think the internet’s) fan favorite for next president is Bernie Sanders. With so much talk about him in our inner circles, he has to stand some sort of chance, right? However/unfortunately, we are a large group of (mainly) younger voters, people that no popular candidate would dare attempt to rake in, because our numbers at the polls are so low. We don’t effect jack shit when it comes to elections. This bares the question:
When the fuck am I supposed to vote?
Everyone knows election day falls in early November. in 2016, it will be November 8th. That is not the only day you can vote! In order for Sanders (or your chosen candidate) to even make it that far, you need to vote in the primary elections. This is sort of a “what’s up in the polls” survey that tells the government who’s voting, and for whom. It narrows down the playing field. This bares the question:
When the fuck am I supposed to vote in the primaries?
Go to mytimetovote.com and check that shit out. Search by state. Get some sort of “facts” about what’s up. It’s not a government affiliated website, so it’s not completely accurate about stuff I’m sure, but there are DATES you need to GET ALL UP ON in order to VOTE in both the PRIMARIES and the GENERAL ELECTION.
Thanks, good luck, be prepared, have a nice week, love, Jake.
p.s. Also please check out wikipedia to learn more– figure out if your state holds open/closed primary elections. Depending on state, you may not be able to vote in the primaries as a registered independent.
