Opinion: Letter to the Editor: Don’t Waste Your Vote

Maybe Joe Biden was not your preferred Democratic candidate and you would rather have supported Warren, Klobuchar, Sanders or Buttigieg. Or maybe you are a Republican who is dissatisfied with Trump’s presidency and wish other Republicans would have run in the primary so that you could have had other Republican choices.

But the fact of the matter is that the only two candidates who have a mathematical chance of winning this election are Biden and Trump. Don’t waste your vote on a Green Party candidate. Don’t waste your vote by writing in a third name in order to “make a statement.” Don’t stay at home and refuse to vote because you are not 100 percent satisfied with the two choices.

If you want things to change you have to specifically vote for Joe Biden, even if you have to hold your nose while doing it. If you sit out of the election or vote for a write-in candidate, you are voting for four more years of mayhem.
