I know, you hate your candidate almost a much as you hate theirs. I know, your candidate was robbed in the primaries, colluded against, maligned, whatever. I know, you really want to support that third-party candidate, but it feels like a wasted vote, and you worry about the other party winning because your party fractured.

I get it.

But you have to get out there and vote anyway.

Look, it doesn’t matter if you can’t stomach the Presidential candidates, vote down-ballot. Vote for your representative at the state or local level. Vote for a Congressional representative or senator. Vote on ballot measures. Vote on whatever there is on the ballot past the Presidential race.

Just vote. It does matter.
