Moms and kids voting

Election day is tomorrow, but parents across the country have been voting for weeks now. It's an election year that is unprecedented for two reasons 1) the never-ending pandemic still spiking in cases in almost every state in the U.S., and 2) the level of early voting that has already happened, surpassing the total votes in the 2016 election in some counties.

Parents are taking their children to vote, whatever that looks to them: polls or drop-boxes. Some are teaching them their civic duty, others have no childcare, some shared tips on how to vote with toddlers and others reminded us they are voting for them.

Regardless of why or how they've voted, these parents are restoring our faith in the democratic process of a presidential election, so to them, thank you.
