Your Vote, Your Voice
“Our American heritage is threatened as much by our own indifference as it is by the most unscrupulous office or by the most powerful foreign threat. The future of this republic is in the hands of the American voter.”
Library Director, Angela Zimmermann:
In the coming month, we will bear witness to one of the most closely watched presidential elections of our generation. One which has only been made more consequential by the COVID-19 pandemic and the social tensions spanning across the country.
Voting is one of the greatest rights and responsibilities United States citizens have. Many people in countries around the world do not share this same freedom we enjoy today, nor did many Americans in decades and centuries past. No matter which candidate you support or issues you believe in, it is important, it is critical, for our democracy that you exercise your right to vote.
