Today is Super Tuesday which means it’s time for you to perform your civic duty and vote for the candidates that you want to represent you! Failing to do so doesn’t get you into trouble but it essentially silences your approval or disaproval of the pending elected officials which will soon be holding office.
Living in one of the Super Tuesday states, it seems appropriate to tell you just why this is so important. First of all, the 11 states awarding delegates to Republican candidates are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia.
The 11 states awarding delegates to Democratic candidates are Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia.
Alaska, Colorado and Minnesota hold caucuses, while the other states hold primaries. Alaska holds caucuses for only the Republican Party on March 1. Colorado holds caucuses for both parties but the Republican Party doesn’t award delegates until later.
This will cetainly show which candidates have the best opportunity to continue on to the general election. Unfortunately, it looks like the race has already been decided despite many more primaries and caucuses let to go.
The polls here in Texas will open until 7pm, so if you are eligible to vote, make sure that you do so! There’s still time in the other states also, so get out there and let your voice sing loud and clear!! Afterall, your voice matters even if you think that it doesn’t!
