If you don't go vote today, you will be missing out on being part of history. There is more than the president on the ballot this year.

I have already voted and apparently lots of others have already cast their election decision too. The last opportunity to be heard will be on Election Day. You have to actually go to the polls and physically vote in person. Don't waste your right as a citizen.

The contrast between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden is tremendous. They really disagree on the issues and they seem to enjoy pointing that out to everyone.

Biden has honestly told us that he will work to make the tens of millions of illegal aliens into American citizens, while President Trump has promised to cut off the flow of illegals into our nation. Trump has repeatedly clashed with China on trade and COVID-19 while Biden refuses to blame China for the virus and he wants to work closely with China. Those are major differences.

Voters in New Bedford, Fall River, Taunton, Fairhaven, Freetown, Cape Cod, and all of the other cities and towns of the Commonwealth have a U.S. Senate race to consider. Republican Kevin O'Connor is an impressive first-time candidate running against Sen. Ed Markey. As impressive as the attorney is, he is facing off against the Democrat who toppled the Kennedy machine last September, and that is one of the most impressive political victories in Massachusetts history.

The ballot questions alone are reason enough to go vote. Question 1 could cost car owners their freedom to repair their vehicles; we like our cars and our freedom to choose who we do business with. Question 2 could completely change the way we elect our leaders to political office and the trajectory of our state.

Go vote.
