Here in the US, the 2018 Election will be a big deal. Either Congress will remain controlled by Republicans or it will – totally or in part – switch over to the Democrats. Whatever the result is will have major effects on the country.
To be part of this election, you have to be registered to vote. Now there are registration drives every election year – possibly even more this year – but why wait until closer to November 6? If you’re just turning eighteen, or never bothered to register before, or are unsure if you’re registered, do it now and beat the rush. There are places like RegistertoVote.org and the League of Women Voters that can help you register. Or, if you’re uneasy using a third party website, you can also use your state website, which is usually your state name.gov.
