Turn Political Apathy into Action on Election Day

It’s that time of the year again; time to visit our individual polling places and vote for the candidates we believe will deliver on their campaign promises and best serve our communities. However, despite its importance, voting has become a scarce activity. The nature of today’s politics, candidates and elected officials has led many of us to become politically apathetic. Rather than turn our frustrations and concerns with the political system and candidates into a vote, some of us opt instead to merely complain about the current political climate and those who serve our communities. Voting certainly is not what it once was when I was a child in the 1980s.
