Obama or Romney? Democrat or Republican? It’s crazy to think that in less than 48 hours, we will know who’s going to be our continuing or next president. I am not a politically opinionated person, but this is something that is very important to college students. For some, this is their first time to vote in a presidential election and voting is definitely something that you should take advantage of.
If you’re like any procrastinating college student, like me, you might have missed early voting last week. So today, I’m going to give you some pointers on voting tomorrow and what you should think about.
Voting for our country’s future president is not a popularity vote. I liked to watch the debates alone, because I don’t want others opinions influencing mine. Take a moment before going into the voting booth and think about your beliefs and morals. Apply those to the way you vote. My favorite decision-making tactic is to think of who you would most be like if you were president.
Some voters may be completely undecided. This is an issue that can become overwhelming as the election is approaching. This is a decision that shouldn’t be decided by the flip of a coin. Your best bet is to pro and con both sides. You even might end up noticing that you’re favoring a side. At the end, check out your pro side for each and see who has more pros or the most substantial reasons.
Once you have made your decision, it’s time to vote! Voting is such an empowering feeling because you get to have a say in one of the country’s biggest decisions. Below are all the places that you can vote in the Brazos County depending on your precinct. You can find out more information on voting at www.brazosvotes.org. Make sure you bring a valid form of identification. That could be your voter ID card, license, passport, or another government-issued ID. If you need help, do not be afraid to ask someone there. They will explain the process so that you can vote with ease. Don’t get overwhelmed with the amount of information on the ballot, just take a deep breath and read it all carefully.
Now that you’re prepared and ready to vote, don’t be afraid and wear your “I voted” sticker proudly!
