Get out and Vote!
Today is Election Day in America. No matter who your party affiliation is or who you are supporting, please vote today! There is nothing more American and constitutional than our right to vote, especially us woman who were not given this right until the Nineteenth Amendment Passed by Congress June 4, 1919 and then Ratified August 18, 1920. For more information on The Woman’s Suffrage please follow the link below and explore the stories of some very heroic woman in their dedication and their desire to unlock opportunities that were open to men, yet denied to woman and you can truly appreciate what many went through and some even died, in the belief for our right as woman to cast our votes and enjoy American freedom of choice. I feel especially proud to have been born in the same great state of New York, where the woman began the suffrage so that today I can walk to the voting polls and cast my ballot, please do the same and get out and vote. http://www.law.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/conlaw/nineteentham.htm
