According to CNN, over 80 million people watched last night’s first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Secretary Clinton, a record-setting number that shows a heightened interest in the spectacle the 2016 election has become.
Whether you sided with either one of the candidates or haven’t quite made up your mind yet, participating in elections doesn’t stop with watching a back-and-forth debate. The only certain way you can make a concrete difference in this election is by registering to vote and showing up to the polls on Tuesday, November 8th or mailing in an early voter ballot.
Today is National Voter Registration Day and the team here at HighGround is encouraging everyone to make sure they are registered and ready to participate in the 2016 election.
Even if you aren’t blown away by either Presidential candidate, there are still lots of statewide and local races that make a huge difference in shaping the state we live in. Senator John McCain, an American hero who has fought for jobs and immigration reform for nearly 30 years in the U.S. Senate, is on the ballot for re-election and we encourage you to vote for him.
If you live in the Phoenix or Scottsdale area, you will likely have a competitive race for the State Legislature. Please do the research on the candidates in your area and vote for the person that represents the best in your community. As we saw in the Congressional District 5 GOP primary race, even 27 votes could swing an election so your vote certainly makes a difference.
Participating in the election is more than just posting a Facebook status or watching a debate. Your vote on Election Day counts, so please visit Service Arizona now and make sure you are registered today!
