Voting is on the mind of the general public these days, obviously. Some people are wrestling with who to vote for, while others wonder if voting really matters at all. Both are legitimate perspectives. It’s your democratic right to vote or not vote, despite what frightened liberals have been saying. Voting is not the entirety of democracy. It does, however, dominate our perception of democracy every election cycle. In Connecticut, voters are privileged by our “blue state” status. Therefore, progressive and independent voters should make the most of it.
