Why take your child with you to vote?

2022 is not a Presidential election year in the United States, but the election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 is a very important election. During this midterm election year, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 seats in the Senate will be contested. If you want to continue to live in a democracy, imperfect as it may be, you need to vote.

Yes, there may be a line. But that`s part of the lesson --  Voting is such a privilege that we`re willing to endure a little discomfort to do it. People all over the world have fought and sometimes died for the right to vote. Bring an umbrella, snacks, and some books about voting to read as you wait. (There are links to several good ones below.)

There are so many reasons to bring your child with you to vote.
