Frank of Bethlehem, PA learned how cool voting could be at a young age. This year he knows that his vote is more important than ever:
“When I was little, my mom and dad would always take me with them to the polls on Election Day. They used mechanical voting machines back then and I remember it made the coolest noise when they would pull the lever to make their choice. Those experiences really instilled in me that voting is something that is fun and important.
“I think that voting this year is especially important. President Obama has repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, voiced his support for same-sex marriage, ensured hospital visitation rights for LGBT patients, and stood up for young victims of anti-gay bullying. As a gay man, this unprecedented progress for LGBT rights means a lot to me. Electing Mitt Romney as President would put that progress at risk.
“In addition to his support for LGBT issues, President Obama has the right policies for our economy. 31 straight months of private-sector job growth show that his plans are working. This November I look forward to casting my ballot for President Obama so he can continue to move our country forward.”
Stand with Frank in supporting President Obama by committing to cast your ballot this year.
