13 Tweets To Inspire You (AND OTHERS) To Vote

Alright, today is the day! If you are like me, you already voted during early voting… But even if you’ve already voted, your job is NOT DONE. It’s time to the remind the people around you that when we don’t vote, we end up with immoral and corrupt leaders. There is a fascinating map I want to show you… If “Did Not Vote” were a candidate in the 2016 election, “Did Not Vote” would have won ALL BUT NINE STATES. Check it out:

Most of these “Did Not Votes” have not gotten out during Early Voting. There are MANY people who are are thinking “What’s the point?” People who are “Too busy.” People who are planning on skipping because they are imagining the lines are too long. These people need some inspiration. Some of these elections could very well be decided by a HANDFUL of votes. If you have already cast your vote, you can still make a difference… Here are some of the best tweets I’ve found to inspire people to get their asses out to the polls… Starting with America’s favorite astrophysicist.

If your vote didn’t matter, they wouldn’t be trying so hard to keep you away from the polls…

In FIFTEEN states, they allow same day voter registration (I have no idea why there are only fifteen, but anyway)…

Vote because our shitty president is trying to intimidate people AGAINST voting…

Vote because being courageous is better than being filled with fear.

Vote because Jerry Falwell, Jr. is an awful human being and a hypocrite, and if Democrats take back the House and the Senate it will totally piss him off…

Vote because Ted Cruz is a total douche who uses the same joke over and over and over, and because Beto O’Rourke is an awesome dude who doesn’t kiss the ass of a man who called his wife ugly and blamed his dad for killing JFK…

Vote because over 50% of Americans have a pre-existing condition, and republicans are trying to take away requirements for health insurance to cover those…

Vote because you don’t have to stay this racist forever…

Vote because the president is a LIAR. Such a total and complete liar…

Vote because the GOP deserves to get destroyed…

Vote because a whole lot of people bled and died for your right to do just that…

And vote because the world is a mess, and people deserve better than this…

 

I love you all. Vote like your vote matters, because it does. At the end of today, there will almost certainly be disappointments… Stay hopeful, even when everything feels hopeless. Thanks for the ways you support me, my writing, and this blog. Be good to each other…
