Get Out And Vote: 9 States Hold Primaries Today

Now, more than ever, it is important for us to elect somebody that will actually fight for the people. As we continue to witness social unrest with protests taking place across the nation, curfews have been imposed to keep people off the streets. On top of that, the coronavirus still poses a major concern. 

Some states had delayed their primary voting because of the pandemic and, today, nine states are open for voting.

District of Columbia, Idaho, Indiana, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and South Dakota are all voting for seats in Congress today. While it is always important to be educated on politics and what's happening in the government, it's arguably more important than ever before for us to make our voices heard through the vote. If you're registered to vote in any of these nine states, please find out how and where to vote and make sure to protect yourself and others by wearing a mask.

This is an important day for Joe Biden, who will likely clinch the nomination on the Democratic side. Senator Bernie Sanders has suspended his campaign, but his name will still appear on the ballot.

With so much happening across the nation, it's important to be politically informed and active. Get out and vote.
