In between autumn and winter, we’ve added a new ‘season’ - voting season - which runs October 5 to November 3. And with it come some unexpected problems: unofficial ballot drop-off boxes, conflicting information in the media, unsupported claims in political ads, health risks when voting in person or volunteering to be a poll worker.
The challenges of exercising our right to vote have demonstrated how our world has changed over the past year. And in this 2020 election, it is more crucial than ever to vote as if your life depends on it – because for some, it does. It’s all on the ballot this year - our beliefs, the values we share, the goals we aspire to.
