Federal and State elections will be held in exactly 1 month, and early voting has already begun in many places. It cannot be overstated how important the upcoming elections are for the nation and, indeed, the world. Without question, the outcome will have both an immediate and lasting impact.
To be sure, we have witnessed escalating attacks against the rule of law, civil liberties, fundamental rights, and the United States Constitution itself. People of good will and and conscience must not be discouraged or deterred by the daunting challenges before us, however, even as the pandemic continues to ravage the United States more than virtually anywhere else. To have the country that we want, need, and deserve, it is essential for everyone to exercise their sacred right to vote.
