The im­por­tance of get­ting out to vote

The Dundalk Eagle - - BY THE PEOPLE - Robert Bel­lamy Corn­wall Road

Chil­dren born 1982 were the first mem­bers of the mil­len­nial gen­er­a­tion. By the year 2000, they were of le­gal age. They could vote and they could join the armed forces. At that time, there were only about four mil­lion mil­len­ni­als el­i­gi­ble to vote.

Ev­ery year after 1982, three-anda-half to four mil­lion new mil­len­ni­als were added. This year, 2018, there are about 75 mil­lion mil­len­ni­als el­i­gi­ble to vote. With the past voter turnout record of the baby boomers and be­yond, this is enough in­flu­ence to ef­fect the elec­tion of ever y con­gres­sional dis­trict in the coun­try.

It’s time for ev­ery vot­ing Amer­i­can to be­gin putting faith and trust in their gov­ern­ment and in each other. VOTE THIS YEAR. YOUR COUN­TRY NEEDS YOU.
