Election Day 2018

Voting is one of our core responsibilities as citizens and the lifeblood of democracy. Especially now, at a time in which the U.S. has been downgraded to a "flawed democracy" by Freedom House and state officials routinely abuse the power of their office to deny some Americans their franchise, voicing our views at the polls is more important than ever.

I was so incredibly proud to get the opportunity to vote for so many strong, inspiring women today. I voted for female candidates for Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative, State Representative, and several other offices. I was also proud to cast my ballot to finally end marijuana prohibition in Michigan.

There is something afoot in America today. Americans will no longer accept the hateful, divisive politics of the incumbent president. We are one nation, and I hope that today's election will bring us one step closer towards realizing the future that we all deserve.
