(RepublicanNews.org) – The last 12 months were a whirlwind of events with an impeachment attempt by disgruntled Democrats. There were months of social and political unrest in the wake of the May 25, 2020, death of George Floyd, a Black man, while in police custody. The end of the year saw a highly-disputed presidential election.
So what about 2021? What will it bring, and what can you do to become more engaged politically?
To begin, you can get out and vote in local and national elections alike. After all, if you don’t participate in our nation’s free elections, do you really have the right to complain? Elections have consequences. Make sure you make your voice heard through the power of your vote.

Next, you can contact your lawmakers and tell them what you think about important issues. It’s not good enough to sit on the sidelines and complain.
You can also get together with other like-minded individuals and make a difference. There’s power in teamwork, and you might find you can get things done by signing petitions or holding town halls.
You have a voice, a powerful one if you use it wisely. Participating in America’s political process is a sacred right. Get out there and make a difference.
