Gentle readers, October 8th marked the final day to register for November 2nd's mid-term election in New York State. Your MatchGirl sincerely hopes that you have registered and that you plan on being at the polls on November 2nd.
It may not seem like a big deal, a mid-term election. But, it is. If you are still unemployed. If you are under-employed. If you are living paycheck to paycheck. If you are worried about what will become of you if things don't start to improve, then it is most certainly a big deal to vote in this election. Whomever is elected next month will be instrumental in forming your future.
