On November 6th, like every #ElectionDay , many employees will feel uncomfortable disrupting the work day to go vote, will feel pressured to prioritize work responsibilities over voting, or may not designate enough time to get to the polls before or after work. Let’s remove this barrier to civic participation and #Vooote
President Daniels joins Hopkins students today to promote #HopkinsVotes ! It’s the last day to register as a voter in Maryland. Our students at Homewood can get help registering at Levering, Brody Cafe, and FFC — and, if they’re fast enough, special HopkinsVotes t-shirts. #election2018#voterregistration#electionday
#ElectionDay is Tuesday, November 6th, and two hundred million Americans will have to show up for work. 42% of eligible voters did not vote in 2016, the majority of that group citing work as the obstacle that kept them from the polls. Let’s remove this barrier and #Vooote
For the Culture and What A Time To Be Alive. May this picture persuade my generation to get off they ass and vote. This is a time for progression not recession. #ElectionDay is exactly 3 weeks away and we need every vote. #VoteDemocrat#ForOurAncestorsWhoFought
Thank you, Lexington, for allowing me to serve you as your mayor since 2013. I would be honored to continue serving you and our town. We are just three weeks away from Election Day—don’t forget to #Vote4MacDougall on November 6!
Spread the word, and please get out to vote. It’s seems to be the only thing we can do. It’s been an honor working with @theproxyproject on this important campaign. Performed by @dushaholmes with music by @jack.dine #dreamteam
I always end up thinking of Ed Abbey when I go to the desert. His conviction that “better a cruel truth than a comfortable delusion,” hits home in this wild time we’re living in. The cruel truth of the day is this: November 6th is Election Day; get your ass out there and vote or democracy fails. .
“Ah yes, a head full of books. The hard part is to force them down through the bloodstream and out through the fingers.” Abbey
If you miss today's deadline to #register by mail, online or the mobile app, don't worry! You can still register in person at @Vote4DC's office or #same -day during #earlyvoting and on #electionday . Visit buff.ly/2nMdkuh for more info.

According to a new survey from PRRI & @theatlantic, this picture represents the number of Americans ages 18-29 who will vote on Nov. 6. • “Just 20% of young Americans made it to the polls in the last midterm elections... But if young voters turn out at even modest rates, it could tilt the scales significantly...” says PRRI CEO Robert Jones. • “Millennials have the numbers to make student debt-relief, public daycare... or any other policy priority of younger Americans into an object of bipartisan consensus,” writes Eric Levitz in @nymag today. “If 71% of eligible voters under 30 cast ballots this November (as 71% of those over 65 did in 2016), the American government would become drastically more responsive to their interests.” • The American government is highly responsive to the interests of older Americans. Swipe ⬅️ to see why. • Do you plan to vote next month? Do you understand the potential power of Americans under 30 at the ballot box? Do you believe that voting in larger numbers will make government more responsive to the interests of young Americans? #vote 🇺🇸
My favorites from a beautiful, surprisingly emotional evening with @petesouza at @kingsbklyn
Legit, I laughed and I cried 😆😭 Also, make sure you take take note of those dates - #electionday for the next three years #throwshadethenvote
Calling all wolves: #ElectionDay is just around the corner. Make sure you don't miss out and your register to #vote ! Registration deadlines have passed in some states and are coming very soon in others; for information on your state's #voter registration deadline, visit: www.voterparticipation.org/2018-election-dates/
“Don’t Boo, Vote.” And if you live in a non-competitive district, vote early by mail-in ballot and spend #ElectionDay getting out the vote! There are tight races all over the country and let’s be honest, we can’t expect a fair fight. #DontAssume If you want help finding a district or reaching out, let me know. I’m happy to help.
#GetOutTheVote#VoteForOurLives#IVoted (P.S. - In NJ it’s illegal to take a picture of your ballot, but the mail-in envelope is fine because it doesn’t reveal your vote. Know your state laws on this.)
Three weeks until Election Day. Holy Men and Women, pray for us, that we may have the courage to follow Christ’s path of humility and gentleness. .
I made this design one evening while feeling really down with the current state of our political discussions. The bar is so incredibly low when we disagree with each other. We no longer respect each other. We attack each other. Jesus didn’t ask us to be kind or nice... sometimes or when we felt like it. He asked us to be ***perfect*** like the Father. We don’t get a pass for slandering those who are not like us or who disagree with us or who even have hateful views... ask me if I struggle with this... 😖😐🇺🇸
A lot of people think this upcoming Election Day is irrelevant because it’s not going to get Trump out of office. There are important questions to protect laws that are necessary. Particularly Question 3. We are rapidly moving in the direction of discrimination against many groups we’ve worked so hard to gain acceptance for these past several years. Massachusetts CANNOT move backwards. We need to protect this law for transgendered people and move them in the direction of having our nations full support. It starts with the state. Please, if you can, and you believe in it, get out and vote yes on Question 3 next month. Share this, talk to people, voice your concerns. It really will make a difference. #massachusetts#election2018#electionday#ma
“My family has reliably voted Democratic for decades. So when my brother came of age and sought to vote for Trump, we didn't know how to feel … On Election Day, when he needed a ride to the polling station, I hid in Target's parking lot. Consequently, he couldn't vote.” —19, St. Louis | In this political era, where even friends and families are divided about their beliefs, we teamed up with @bustle to ask readers to share a political secret they’d never told a soul. We received hundreds of responses –– and asked artists to illustrate nine of the most illuminating. We’ll be sharing one story every week until Election Day. 🎨: @haleytippmann
If you didn’t know the power we as Latinos have to make an impact on elections pick up a copy of USAToday, interesting read. Make sure you registered to Vote 🗳 and make your vote count. #electionday#NOV6#makeadifference
There are officially just 3 weeks left until the #MidtermElections on November 6th!
Did you know that some eligible voters still don't come out to the polls on #ElectionDay ...simply because of transportation issues?
Friends, please take these few weeks to check in with your family, friends, and neighbors, and consider offering them a ride to their polling place if they do not have one already! Voting is an essential part of our #democracy and no eligible voter should be left out! #VOTE#TeamMcCauley#McCauleyForCongress

The previous presidential elections on 9 October 2011 saw incumbent president Paul Biya elected for another seven-year term following a 2008 constitutional amendment that removed term limits, allowing Biya to run again. Going into the 2018 elections Cameroon has experienced unrest in the English-speaking portions of the country where separatists have attempted to create the state of Ambazonia. The worst of the unrest has been experienced in Manyu where several western countries issued travel warnings to their citizens. The Social Democratic Front, a party that traditionally performs well in the English-speaking portions of the country, has been vocal in their criticism of the handling of the unrest. Biya has responded to the unrest by stating that he would like to see faster progress made on decentralization reforms that were begun in 2010 so that local regions would have more self governance.
On 15 June 2018, the BBC obtained a copy of a letter from Paul Biya to the leader of Cameroon's Senate, appearing to request that the elections be postponed until October 2019. In July President Biya announced that the election would be held on October 7, 2018. #elections2018#electrician#electionday#cameroon
INTERVIEW: ‘Dare to deliver’ more for the world, underscores General Assembly President
In June, the 193-member United Nations General Assembly, elected Ecuadorean Foreign Minister María Fernanda Espinosa Garcés, the President of its 73rd session. Ms. Espinosa is only the fourth woman to hold that position in the history of the world body, and the first woman ever from the Latin America and the Caribbean region to preside over the Assembly.
In his congratulatory remarks, Secretary-General António Guterres introduced her as an experienced diplomat and politician who understands “the need to cooperate when addressing current global challenges.” In addition to serving as the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility, Ms. Espinosa has also been the Minister of Defence and Coordinating Minister of Cultural and Natural Heritage of her country.
She begins her duties in the Assembly’s top job, on Monday afternoon, when she takes the historic gavel from Miroslav Lajčák, the President of the 72nd session.
Ms. Espinosa: I think that we are really living in a very troubled environment, and I think it is very important that we really work towards the strengthening of the multilateral system and the revitalization of the United Nations; that we work hard to deliver better.
To use an acronym that I have come up with, the “D.A.R.E” acronym: dare to deliver better, dare to improve the way we work together within the system. D.A.R.E. means “Delivery, Accountability, Relevance and Efficiency.” The D.A.R.E acronym is going to guide my work as President of the General Assembly during the 73rd session. So, revitalize and boost multilateralism, revitalize the General Assembly, revitalize the UN system. I think that we all need, and we will all benefit from, a strong rules-based international system.
