Tuesday, August 18, 2020 – The Right to Vote


Tuesday, August 18, 2020 – The Right to Vote

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution giving women the right to vote.

My grandmother did not have the right to vote.  My mother had to pay a poll tax to vote. I have voted in every election since I turned 18 years old.

On October 13, 2020 I plan to be in line for the first day of early voting. I will be prepared to stand in line. I will bring lunch, dinner, and breakfast if necessary. I will wear necessary garments to stand in line without a bathroom break. I will bring a book. I will have music and earbuds.

I will not be denied access to voting. Neither should anyone else.

  1. It amazes the hell out of me that anyone, particularly women, would not exercise their right to vote. Go to the polls
