Today is Election Day! Stay Woke, Steve Harvey Nation, we the people, will be casting our votes for Governors, Mayors, and State Amendments. Why do you need to vote today? Because much of the governing that affects you every single day, is the result of these elections.
There are tight Gubernatorial races in Virginia, between Governor and Democrat Terry McAuliffe vs. Republican Glenn Youngkin. If you live in New Jersey re-elect Democratic Governor Phil Murphy! There are heavy mayoral races in New York, Atlanta, and Buffalo. And in Minneapolis, where George Floyd’s murder touched off a national push to reform law enforcement, a sweeping city charter amendment that would overhaul the city’s Police Department. If passed, the Yes 4 Minneapolis amendment would replace the city’s Police Department with a Department of Public Safety that would dispatch crisis managers or social workers to respond to emergencies before police officers.
