The General Election is Tuesday, November 7, 2017. The Virginia polls are open 6 a.m.-7 p.m. Who will become Virginia’s 73rd governor? Who will become Virginia’s next lieutenant governor? Who will become Virginia’s next attorney general? Who will become new members in the House of Delegates? Who will become the next Richmond city sheriff? Who will become the next treasurer in Richmond city? And, other local races across Virginia. The choices are yours at the stroke of a vote on #Nov7.

The vote is your fundamental right in America. Black people were battered, bruised and killed for the “vote.” Blacks were  required to take literacy tests and pay a “poll tax” in order to vote. Black people were prevented to vote through various means in Southern states including Virginia.

The vote is important because it affects every aspect of your life from housing, education, justice, employment, finances to health care. The ability to vote can and will change the course of local, state and federal government.

Today the “vote” is priceless but costly if you don’t exercise its use. The vote or lack of, will either power up or power down your community.

If you don’t like it, don’t complain about it, vote about it… This is my “Clo-ism” and I’m sticking to it. Miss Community Cloovia
