Why are you voting?

I voted because I feel that the country is going in a direction that I think could be better. I am hoping that my vote today will change that aspect of things.

What presidential platform policies or issues are most important to you?

I am hoping to see policies that encourage people to embrace each other no matter what race or ethnicity. I feel like we’ve been divided during the last few years and my vote and others’ votes matter because we need to bring unity back. Unity in the country has been out of sync. A policy should be put in effect to slowly but surely bring that [unity] back.
