of volunteers working the polls, it would have been a challenge to keep our polling places open.

Just about everything is different in 2020—including the upcoming November election.

Para no hacerte el cuento largo, we most likely won’t know the election results on November 3rd. The process of counting all of the votes and declaring a winner may take longer than normal this year. Pero recuerda: when election officials take the time to count and verify every ballot, la democracia esta funcionando. 🗳️

Every eligible voter should have their voice heard and vote counted in every election.

This year is no exception.

So, light your veladora🕯️, take a breather, and share this info with our friends and family.
---------------------
Casi todo ha sido diferente en 2020, incluyendo las próximas elecciones.

Para no hacerte el cuento largo, lo más probable es que no sepamos los resultados de las elecciones el 3 de noviembre. El proceso de contar todos los votos y declarar un ganador puede tomar más tiempo de lo normal este año. Pero recuerda: cuando los funcionarios electorales se toman el tiempo para contar y verificar cada boleta, la democracia está funcionando.🗳️

Cada votante debe ser escuchado y cada voto debe ser contado en cualquier elección.
Este año no es la excepción.
Así que prende tu veladora🕯️, respira profundo y comparte esta información con tus amigos y familiares.

We all know that one person who “is not into politics.” 🙄
Peor tantito, that same person genuinely believes their vote doesn’t even matter.

Before you answer—respira profundo!
Bájale al drama and start by asking - why?
Listen to their concerns.
Empathize with them.
Explain that even if they think their vote won't change the outcome of their life, it will change the lives of many others in their community.
Remind them that if democracy is going to work for all of us then it must include all of us.

Todos conocemos a alguien que “no cree en la política.” 🙄
Peor tantito, esta persona en verdad cree que su voto no importa.

Antes de que se te salga la Soraya que tienes dentro—respira profundo!
Bájale al drama y empieza preguntado—¿por qué?
Escucha sus preocupaciones.
Ponte en sus zapatos.
Explicale que incluso si piensa que su voto no cambiará el resultado de su vida, su voto cambiará la vida de muchos otros en su comunidad.
Recuérdale que si la democracia va a funcionar para todos nosotros, debe incluirnos a todos.

No se tú pero... the last four years have felt like a bad episode of Casos de la Vida Real. Todo el drama can feel so real sometimes that you have to pinch yourself just to make sure you’re not an extra in some 2020 telenovela plot.

Típico: Es de noche y tienes hambre.
Abres el refri, agarras la "mantequilla" y un pan tostado. Te sientas y cuando abres el tupper, te das cuenta que no es mantequilla. Son frijoles.
Así mismo, la difusión de desinformación puede dejarnos confundidos, tristes y hambrientos.

Typical: It's late and you're hungry.
You open up the fridge, grab the "butter” and a piece of toast. You sit down and as you open up the container, you realize that—in fact—it’s not butter. It's bean
Much like this tupperware tragedy, the spread of disinformation can leave us feeling confused, sad, and hangry.

🍴💭 Monday’s food for thought.

Basically, we are asking the police to do the job of a social worker, a mental health specialist, a school nurse, etc. all while being armed. #DefundThePolice means taking some money from a police dept’s budget, and using it to create more affordable housing, or to funding mental health services. That would create a community safety net better suited to respond to situations, rather than an armed officer.
