This applies to all readers who live in nations with public elections, but since I live in the United States, I’m focused more on elections here.
Everybody complains about politics. You can either remain a whiny brat online, or you can do something about it. The simplest thing you can do is vote; vote the worthless schmucks out of office and vote in someone who will represent you. But to vote, you have to register. There are places like RegistertoVote.org and the League of Women Voters that can help you do that. Or, if you’re uneasy using a third party website, you can also use your state website, which is usually your state name.gov. Depending on your state, there are various days you need to be register by in order to vote come November 8, so do it now to get it out of the way.
