Today is National Voter Registration Day!
This year I became a first time voter! I was always worried about if I became registered then I would have to do jury duty, that was the ONLY reason stopping me from voting! What made me decide to register was the outcome of the 2016 elections, the shooting at Parkland, and the senseless act of gun violence that killed my childhood friend Joey Gingerella who was trying to save a woman from her boyfriend until said boyfriend decided that my friend’s life wasn’t worth it and shot him multiple times.
I’m so proud of the organizations that are pushing to keep the word out to register to vote!
