Grow your political knowledge
Perhaps you are a person who doesn’t believe the hype of either candidate and are having a problem with the limited choice of selecting the “lesser of two evils.” Remember, there is much more on the ballot than two candidates for the White House. In two years, another round of important elections will take place for City Council, School Board, Governor, House Representative, and Senate seats. These decisions directly affect what happens right in your own back yard. Literally.
My advice? Select an issue that is important to you. It doesn’t matter if it is education, local taxes, environmental sustainability, or the economy. Follow that issue in your local area. Pay close attention to the key players on these issues and watch how they vote, if they are consistent, and whether you agree with their decisions. This will empower you to be informed beyond the talking points of the next election cycle and hold candidates accountable if and when they recant later. It will also provide greater context for propositions on the ballot. As my father used to remind me often growing up, “Knowledge is Power.”
