Voting

DISCLAIMER:  I am NOT a women's libber, bra burner, protestor ~ just a women who has a passion for equality in all forms.  

Just off the heels of our Independence Day celebrations, let us not forget some of the reasons we are able to have freedoms and rights in our country.  We began early voting here in our county for the July 20th primary vote. I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you, especially women, to vote.

August 26th marks the 90th year celebration of women's legal right to vote in the US.  The women that fought for our rights went through some AWFUL times. Women were beaten and left for dead, jailed, husbands divorced them, cussed at, etc.
AND
Wars have raged for years, many of those fought to protect our freedoms.  Our servicemen and women continue to sacrifice their lives, leave their families, and try to make the world a better place all in the name of protecting the rights and freedoms we enjoy, and many times take for granted. 

Materials about the Women's Suffrage Movement are available on the internet, in our library, etc.
are a couple of good sites.

Okay, off my soapbox!

VOTE EARLY ~ VOTE OFTEN!
