28 Reason’s I’m Thankful to Turn 28

  2. I have my little fluffer Momo who loves me unconditionally (this was 8th but I moved it up, yes ahead of James)
  3. I am fortunate enough to have James in my corner- you are my rock and the biggest pain in my ass, but you support me unconditionally in everything I do, even when I say crazy things like “I want to go for my Doctorate”
  4. My sweet little wiggle butt Milo who was the best thing to happen to us this 2020.

VOTE VOTE VOTE – November 3rd, 2020

One of the most important and impactful things we can do for our country is vote. This is a PRIVLAGE – especially for Women and minorities that we MUST take advantage of. I just wanted to compile a quick post of some important links before we hit Election Day in November.

Registration deadlines

  • ONLINE: October 24th
  • By Mail: Postmarked by October 24.
  • In Person: October 24th

In Massachusettes, you must submit a request for your ballot by OCTOBER 20th!

Early voting will begin in Massachusetts in person from October 17th to October 20th. Schedules and locations will be posted on the links above.

If you do not know where you go to vote or where to securely drop your ballot, use the links above. For people reading this from others states, you can find your voting information website here.

This year, voting is a lot more risky than previous given the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have noticed in the past, most people who man the polls are retired or elderly citizens – those in the highest risk category. To make sure your polling location stays open and those at risk can stay home, if you are young and healthy you should consider signing up to work the polls! I’m talking voting polls…

I have volunteered this year, I should hear back in the next few weeks if I will be needed. There is a training course you have to take, but you typically are compensated for your time in districts that can afford it!

IF you find any other thinks you feel are helpful, reach out to me directly I would be more than happy to add it in, once verified of course.

Thank you for reading and GO VOTE!

XOXO
