    I was blessed with a Mom who taught me the importance of voting I registered to vote on my 18th birthday and have voted in every election since then which was 1973

    • @E Hole Just anonymous like you. So are you related to Dr. Evil?

    • I’m 42 and I voted for the first time yesterday. I never cared before. This time it’s too important

    • I remember our highschool librarian help me register to vote! So glad she did!

    • @Feral Human so funny that u think you are anonymous.

    • @Feral Human I was still on a student visa when Carter was elected so I couldn’t participate and vote. I always thought he was too kind and considerate a man to dabble in politics. But those were the days where candidates on both sides carried themselves with dignity and were easy to like and want to at least hear out.

  2. Stay the course people WE must VOTE !!!! Wear your mask wear your gloves just get out there and VOTE !!! Lets get our country back from this burnt carrot and his sheep .

  3. Young voters are motivated to get rid of old grey men older and more sclerotic than their own great grandfather’s.

  4. If you still have early voting, Please continue to vote. Don’t trust the polls. People lie on polls. If you have a mail in ballot or an absentee ballot, in some states it is to late to mail them in. Take them and turn them in in person. VOTE FOR BIDEN-HARRIS. We need to take OUR COUNTRY BACK. Stay safe and stay well. Thanks. Greetings from a senior citizen in Texas.

      It us good to see the amount of people opting for a trump free America, while thus is not scientific, after 4 years if following this on YouTube I’ve noticed a marked change in anti trump comments. It used to be about 50/50 for trump and the democrats but its 95% anti trump now. But I still think that everyone that can should vote and then help others to vote. You need to stop McConnell and his gang of fascist republicans in congress and the dictator trump. So Scotland wishes you all well and stay safe while voting. 🤗👍🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿👏👏👏

    Guys just a friendly reminder, it’s too late to mailing your ballot. You’ve got to take it in now, Use a drop box or early vote until Friday. Don’t miss the precious opportunity to exercise the right to vote, USA needs you.
    Biden & Harris 2020 !!!!

    • I like your YouTube name. One of my favorite dishes.

      Yes, FLORIDA- Take those 800,000 outstanding votes to the nearest safe box-

    Make a plan. Your vote is your voice.

    Good job generation x,y,z.. however you identify yourselves. KEEP VOTING

  10. It’s so encouraging to hear so many young people are realizing the power they hold with their vote! My own daughter will be voting in her first presidential election too!

  11. I remember being young & not voting & thinking that my vote doesn’t count & that the lying politicians really don’t care. That was then & this is now & I’m so glad that young people are coming out in droves & voting. Sometimes we take for granted & don’t appreciate something until its in imminent danger of being taken away!

    • @Baby drumphf Jimmy Carter is so old, he was a junior officer to Admiral Nimitz in the Navy. Jimmy Carter was around for the development of the first nuclear powered Naval vessels

    • I helped Reagan get his landslide in 84’

    • @Moe Snert He ignored the AIDs crisis for far too long. So “meh” about Reagan.

    • Karen Byrd they all ignore us. They serve their donors not the people

    • Trump has made it clear that he will try and steal this election any way he can. He started with delaying the post and continues with his puppets in the Supreme court
      Go and get in line now. the undeniable buzz of folks seeking change has to be experienced for yourself
      Women & Men put on your Masks, get the Sanitizer ready and take your children or Grand kids with you when you vote, even if you have to take them out of school. This will take a little planning to keep them warm, fed and entertained and may well try your patience a little. It will however instill in them a superb and invaluable lesson in true citizenship by teaching them, by example, the over-riding importance of casting your vote. They will remember this lesson for all time and will ensure the future existence of the American way of life. If you have already voted, make a point of driving by the lines and explain to the kids why those folks are happy to wait.

      Show a little love and take a chair, take a spare and share with others.

      Don’t be put off by thoughts of intimidation. Trumps bully boys are the ultimate cowards and the presence of multiple phones on video really puts them off. If anything, having kids there dramatically reduces any chance of loud or threatening intimidation. Stand up Proud (so sorry others have hijacked the word) and show your kids the correct way to act.

      God Bless America, all her Children and their continuing right to vote


  12. Only One Party Hates the Fact that
    More People are Voting…..😉

      Trump is in court in 6 different states trying to stop the deadline for counting mail in ballots

      @E Hole @sucks 2bwhite is pretending to be black.

    • Brian Mitchell | October 28, 2020 at 6:00 PM | Reply

      @Wearesupposedtobea Democracy I agree that there is no such thing as a perfect candidate and clearly Trump is a disgrace that has to go! However, I don’t agree that Biden has any ideas! He has been completely bereft of any decent ones in his whole 47 years in politics and he has offered ‘no’ policy at all in this campaign (historically he has had some terrible ideas- Crime Bill, Iraq war, ensuring permanent student debt -The list could go on and on). It is appalling that the choice is to be shot by Trump or stabbed by Biden! Biden is the better option because there are better odds surviving a stabbing, but what a choice to have to make!

    • @Brian Mitchell fake news‼️

    • @Sucks 2bwhite troll!!!

  13. It’s good to see our youth connected to the Democracy that affects people across this great country.

  14. I am so proud of the young Americans of every race coming out and protesting against racism, coming out to vote it’s beautiful and very hopeful for change.

    • They don’t want the future their elders have handed them. They want something better.

    • Ditto. The BLM marchers have really sparked youngfolks & made them realize that we have to fight our battles on multiple fronts. Voting is just as useful a tool as protesting.

    • The slave master of the Democratic Party do your research

    • T. R. Campbell | October 28, 2020 at 1:27 PM | Reply

      What are the problems that I see is the racism is existing in many of our most progressive cities. We see an armed Black people being killed by police in our progressive cities. Let me name a few. New York City, Ferguson, Baltimore, Atlanta, Louisville, Kenosha and most recently Philadelphia. Although, the guy in Philadelphia did have a knife and was attacking police officers. Nevertheless there were riots that the city was unable to deal with.
      We also hear cries of systemic racism coming from our most progressive cities. Wouldn’t you think that our progressive cities would be cornerstones of advancements for minorities. That appears not to be the case and a UC Berkeley researcher pointed out that the same conditions that existed on the slave plantations in the antebellum South continue to exist in our most progressive cities.
      So very sadly I think if you vote strictly for a party affiliation without taking into consideration the background and platform of the individual Candidates. You might be voting to continue abuse and systemic racism of our minority citizens.

  15. Biden landslide 💙💙💙💙💙💙
    *-Vote early in person or put into dropbox. (by mail not in time)..* Vote out all GOP Senat👎
    *-No Stimulus for ppl in need!*

    One person at a time. That’s what I’ve been doing with these comments; trying to reach out to people one at a time to make a difference. Am I succeeding? I’ll never know. But if just one more person starts wearing a mask (and covering their nose or it is worthless), washing their hands a full 20 seconds and social distancing – I’ll take it. Spread the word – kindness & compassion are the best antidotes to anger, pain and fear. Encourage people to do their own research beyond social media. Like every vote counts – so does every mask. Please be respectful too. Stay safe out there everyone. We can do this.

  17. ‘Common’ sense is missing in most of America today.

  18. Please America, the world needs you to dump trump. Love to you all.

    • The people born after 1995 have Bush, Mitch, and Trump as the face of he Republican party, what’s not to like. And Republicans are so deeply invested on the donors and getting rich from the office by becoming a pal to the donors it will be hard for them to change the face they have been showing us since Bush.

  19. The young people said they where going to make sure Trump didn t get elected by voting

  20. Young people can liberate their country from the tyranny of Trump.

    • @G. Lowenklee Fake dems (Clinton , Obama,Biden) = fake leadership + fake policies = no changement !(statue quo)

      Gen z is voting Biden! I’m 18 and just voted blue for the first time two days ago through early voting. The majority of gen z is very liberal.

    • Timothy Johnson | October 28, 2020 at 5:16 PM | Reply

      @lasting happiness Thank you

    • ​@Baxter Powel and?

      At issue is the frequency with which young people don’t effectively leverage their social power.

      Regarding “fake dems” …as opposed to what?
      Clinton, Obama, Biden *are* the Democratic Party. Or do you think FDR, Kennedy, or Johnson were any better?

      It’d be more accurate to call AOC and Sanders “fake” Democrats …unfortunately there’s no American SDP or viable Green Party with whom they might more appropriately caucus.

      Maybe the real issue is that you simply don’t like the Democratic Party. More power to you.

    • @UCNfC-txMjRAZzYaeRuml2cA you do what?
