How Important Is Your Future? Let It Be Known Today!

- By Bossip Staff

As we reminded you yesterday, today is election day across the United States. And while it’s not as glamorous, this election is just as, if not more, important than the historic election that put President Barack Obama in office.

With all 435 seats in Congress up for re-election, the ballot you cast today will most definitely make a difference in the kinds of laws and legislations that will be passed between now and the next Presidential election in 2012. The majority of you, 37 out of 50 states, will also be choosing a new Governor. There are 37 U.S. Senators also up for re-election today.

Regardless of who you plan on voting for, know that every voice matters. If you’re a Democrat, you should know that a “CNN Poll of Polls” compiled and released Monday indicates that 51 percent of likely voters would choose a Republican candidate for Congress. If you’re a Republican, you should know that those numbers don’t mean much everybody that is eligible to vote doesn’t make it to the polls.

U.S. midterm voters choose who makes decisions that touch millions of American lives. These issues range from taxes and national security to Social Security benefits and Medicare. And the decisions made in each state can have widespread effects on everyone in the country. Everything from education policy to health care and taxes goes through the U.S. House of Representatives, and which party is in control makes a big difference. The balance of power could hinge on who gets elected governor in states far from yours.

We’re not here to tell you who to vote for. We’re simply asking you to exercise the right that so many people have died for you to have.

Polls in most states are open from 7am to 7pm. If you’re not sure where to go or what to bring with you, there are several good resources online, like, that will give you all of that information, as well as let you know where to go vote.

So get out there and take charge of your future. And remember: if you don’t vote, you can’t complain.
