Make voting a priority

Approximately 90 million people who are eligible to vote in the November presidential election won't. One of the main reasons given is it takes too long to vote and people are too busy. I've found it takes about 20 minutes to vote.

Last weekend, the iPhone 5 went on sale. Many who say they don't have time to vote are the same ones who endured long overnight lines to purchase the latest and greatest. Technology is wonderful; however, it can make us busier and consume a lot of time, if we allow it to.

Take time to vote in November. Making time is nothing more than identifying a priority. This election should be worth 20 minutes to everyone.
