It's Election Day, and HelloGiggles urges you to vote!
To say this election has been exhausting would be an understatement — if you need a break from social media for awhile, we totally get it. Because regardless of which presidential candidate you side with, it’s true that these last couple years have been polarizing in terms of our country’s political and social climate. We’ve heard a lot of hateful words, we’ve read countless stories from all kinds of perspectives (many we don’t agree with), we’ve witnessed a kind of clashing in the U.S. that is unique to our generation. And it’s all coming to a head today, Election Day.
Which brings us to say, make sure you vote today (if you haven’t already). We don’t know who you’re voting for, and we don’t really care either way. What’s important is that you, reader, are letting your voice be heard. And while we are total proponents of post-election self-care, go out and cast your ballot so we can collectively heal as a nation.
Here’s who HG editorial is voting for and why.
And as for me, I already mailed in my ballot, but I’m with Hillary all the way because I’m excited about the things she’ll be able to do for women (empower them, support their right to choose what they do with their bodies, and recognize that equal pay is an important issue we must put to the forefront), as well as the country.
Regardless of who you support and why, we encourage you to vote, vote, vote!
