Elections Are Not To Be Scrolled Past - Carlos Salomon Guzman

by Bridget Voltz on 2022-10-07T16:13:00-04:00 | Comments

FHG Library Student Worker, Carlos Salomon Guzman, provides commentary on why "elections can’t just be scrolled past or unplugged".

It’s always something new. Whether you check the news, Twitter, or even your email, It’s always something new….Sometimes these notifications seem nonsensical, like Trisha Paytas allegedly naming her baby after the Queen or, in some cases, very significant, like an upcoming recession. However, elections can’t just be scrolled past or unplugged. It always comes around, and they are foundational to the processes of democratic states.

Voting provides the opportunity for you to directly have a say on those who represent you, make rules that affect you, and that advocate for issues you care about. Right now, you can stop at the FHG Library and visit our display showcasing books just in time for November 8th. You’ll find books on topics ranging from the history of women’s suffrage in Lillian’s Right To Vote, the lack of voter turnout in The American Nonvoter, and even the common disenfranchisement of groups in the U.S as discussed in Blackballed: The Black Vote and US Democracy.
