VOTE

Today’s the big day, y’all. I know a lot of folks have already voted, which is awesome. And heartening. But if you’re reading this and haven’t yet made your voice heard in this incredibly important election, please drop what you’re doing and go vote. And if you know someone who’s considering sitting this one out, send a friendly reminder. I don’t know what the next few days will look like, but I do know that the future will look a whole lot brighter a whole lot sooner if a whole lot of people go to the polls today with love in their hearts.

A few voting resources that might come in handy:

Polling place locator
What should I bring with me to the polls?
Election Protection Hotlines

I thought I’d also share a song worth taking with you (literally or figuratively) when voting today. I’ve been enjoying the cover of Neil Young’s “Lotta Love” that Helado Negro put out last week — with contributions from Flock of Dimes, Devendra Banhart, and Richmond’s own Trey Pollard. Win or lose, these lyrics chart a clear path for the road ahead:

It’s gonna take a lotta love
To get us through the night
It’s gonna take a lotta love
To make things work out right

If you’re reading this, whether you’re hopeful, confused, stressed, or just eager for this election to be over with, I want you to know that I love you. And I promise whatever happens, it’ll help to have this song in your heart.
