This election cycle feels like it has run on forever. Whether you love one candidate or hate them both, please stop and think about how special the right to vote truly is. American women have had the right to vote for 96 years. This is only the 25th Presidential election in which women are eligible to vote. Exercising your right to effectuate change and make your voice heard is far more important than which candidate you like.
So, whether your polling place anthem is Sufferin' 'til Suffrage or Suffragette City, remember that American women have both the obligation and the right to vote!
In case you still need more incentive to vote, here's a list of several local businesses that are offering special perks with your I Voted sticker or your polling place selfie. (You CAN pull a Timberlake in Kentucky; there are no laws prohibiting selfies at Kentucky polls!)
Do you need a little art therapy for stress release while you wait for the Election results? Paducah's MAKE studio has free coloring sheets and supplies all day!
