The vote is your fundamental right in America. Black people were battered, bruised and killed for the “vote.” Blacks were required to take literacy tests and pay a “poll tax” in order to vote. Black people were prevented to vote through various means in Southern states including Virginia. Check your voter status, poll location, candidates on the ballot and your sample ballot at the Virginia Department of Elections.
Miss Community wants you to save these dates….
*The deadline to request an absentee ballot to be mailed to you is Tuesday, November 1, 2016. The request must be received by your local Registrar by 5:00 p.m.
*The deadline to request an absentee ballot by appearing in-person is 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 5, 2016
The vote is important because it affects every aspect of your life from housing, education, justice, employment, finances to health care. The ability to vote can and will change the course of local, state and federal government.
Today the “vote” is priceless but costly if you don’t exercise its use. The vote or lack of, will either power up or power down your community.
If you don’t like it, don’t complain about it, vote on it… This is my “Clo-ism” and I’m sticking to it. Miss Community Cloovia
