The fall season is finally here and while many of us are starting to pull out sweaters and look at all the latest recipes of pumpkin spice.  Many of us will be heading to the polls as another election has come upon us.

I’m sure if you’re on social media, watching the news, and even having civil conversations between family and friends I'm sure you have heard the following statement

This is the most important election of our lives.

However, whether Democrat, Republican, or Independent it is very important that you know your status and make sure you’re registered to vote in this year’s midterm election.
