The election is less than a week away, and what a wild ride this has been so far.  Michigan is a must win state for both candidates.  Proof of that is how many times the candidates and their running mates have stopped in Michigan.

As we get closer to the election, which is next Tuesday, both candidates continue to make stops here.  President Trump made a campaign stop in Lansing Tuesday at the Capitol Region International Airport and it was just announced today that he will be back on Saturday for another airport rally in the Detroit area.  The Joe Biden campaign just announced that President Barack Obama will join his former V.P. for a campaign stop in Michigan, also on Saturday.

75 million Americans have already voted in this election, so with that in mind, here is 20 reasons you should vote in 2020.

It's what binds us together,  exercising our free will with our vote.

When you cast your vote you are casting you vote for a better life and for freedom.

Freedom is a light for which many men have died in can only be found with a vote.

Women who protested for all women to have the right to vote were jailed and had to be force fed for 3 weeks.  They did this so you could have the right to vote in your own country.

By voting you are setting a good example for the younger generation of up-coming voters.

The younger vote was on the decline for many years, but this election  has them saying enough is enough, this vote is my voice.

"The ballot is stronger than the bullet"  - Abraham Lincoln
