Voter turnout is one of the biggest problems in an election, especially primaries, so make sure your voice is heard. Your vote matters! Before you head out to cast your ballot, read up on the candidates, watch their debate and forum videos on Youtube, try to make it out to one of their many meet and greet events, and of course keep an eye on my blog for updates!
