What do Alabama, American Samoa, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia all have in common?

They’ll be casting their votes in the Democratic primaries on March 3, 2020, also known as Super Tuesday.

Super Tuesday marks the single day when the most voters and states have a chance to participate in the polls and determine the future of the country. According to the Washington Post, more than a third of all delegates for the Democratic National Convention will be up for grabs.

Each aspiring candidate needs 2,376 delegates to win the nomination, which means Super Tuesday has the potential to affect the rest of the 2020 presidential race.

How to vote by Brianna C

During the last presidential election season in 2016, only 60% of the population voted.

Regardless of political affiliation, it is imperative to speak through the ballot box. Nowadays, the system is railed against as corrupt and unmoving. However, unpopular politicians can be ousted and replaced with ones that will represent the dreams and values of the people.

Let’s change the status quo, and mold the future to our goals.

Let’s vote.
