Every Vote Counts

Standard

With the election just two short weeks away, I’ve been chatting with some friends about voting (for those of you that know me, this isn’t a surprise).

A few have expressed doubt that their vote actually matters in an campaign that has been flooded with money from corporations, special interest groups, and super PACs. While I spent a while trying to convince them that their vote can effect change, the Obama Campaign released a great ad that sums it up in 32 seconds.

If you think your vote doesn’t count, think again. Get out there and vote!

President Obama offered a sneak peak of the parody.
