Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.

As mothers, our opinions and political views will help shape the future for our children. So are you ready to vote? Have you taken some time to learn about which candidate will best represent our country and your family? Vote, make sure your family & friends vote and tell your children about the voting process.

Melanie, I couldn't agree more. When I see black and white pictures of women fighting for our rights to suffrage decades ago and think of all those women that just don't take the time today, it really makes me sad.
But I also know moms are busy.
When chatting with local ladies, some are confused on what issues to vote for. Also, as a woman voter I keep seeing on multiple news outlets articles like this.
It's worth taking a little time to research what platform highlights more of what is important to you and get out there to vote.
I found this website and it has some good info, links to poll places, ID requirements at poll, ect. Hope it helps. I know we all have a lot going on as mothers. We work 24 hrs a day with no vacation time, but I hope we all try our best to make our voices heard.
I agree, as a working mom, being at a polling place at 5:30 with all the others that worked that day is not very efficient with having to do homework, make dinner and such. I always vote by mail - or use a lunch break to do early voting. Both fit into my lifestyle better. So there are no excuses not too, they make is super easy. Now which candidate is another question all together.

I have never gone to any place other than my home to vote. I had been voting by mail. It's less time consuming and less stress, lol.
