The first Presidential Election was back in 1789. On April 30, 1789 George Washington was voted in as our 1st President of the United States. It was decided in 1792 for the Presidential Elections to be held on the first Tuesday in November. The people thought this was a good time for an election as the harvest would be completed, the weather wouldn’t be that bad and the election winner would start off the beginning of the new year. Fast forward to August 19, 1920 when women finally won the right to vote!
So now we all know a few facts that maybe you didn’t know before! It’s always good to learn something new! As we move into another Presidential Election year, I urge you to VOTE! We can VOTE as an absentee voter, mail in voter or in person voter. VOTE early! It is our right as Americans to VOTE!
As the Republican and Democratic Conventions have come to an end we have heard both sides of the story for now. We live in a country where we can choose who we want to marry, what religion we want to believe in, what career we want to pursue, the list goes on and on and includes who we want to VOTE for. We live in a country that needs to respect and embrace our differences vs judge and be cruel because we are different! Be open minded!
God Bless America
