17 Powerful Quotes About The Presidential Election That Remind You To Stay Informed And Go Vote

election quotes about voting and the president

The 2020 presidential election campaign trail has kicked off and delivered a monsoon of political news coverage and pundit opinions to the public. Naturally, an over saturation of the breaking news coverage can cause us to start to drown in the information that supposed to keep us afloat and informed.

Following every detail of election coverage can be exhausting, and honestly, we are all far to busy managing work, family, and love to really be bothered with the news. But when it comes to the presidential election, we could all benefit from taking a breather and tuning in every so often.

This list of quotes is like a snapshot of the current political scene. Candidates are starting to make bold statements about policy and justice. They are choosing main platform issues and visiting communities across the nation.

The democratic side of the election is bountiful with candidates. With options in the double digits, the first democratic debate had to be held in two parts due to the volume of expected responses. With the incumbent candidate making a second term campaign, the Republican side of the race is practically decided. (There is one other contender to the Republican primary election, Bill Weld, but it is like that he will drop out of the race before the election comes.)

As we move into the early months of 2020, many more concrete motions will eventually deliver us our president.

One of the easiest ways to stay in the loop with the campaign trail is by reading quotes from the presidential candidates. This allows you to hear what they believe the country needs to focus on and decide if you agree or not. Of course, reading and watching news stories is also a huge addition to our understanding of what is happening in and around Washington. But looking out for bare quotes can help you find your candidate to support without the opinions of others clouding your thought process.

Make sure to keep checking in as the election draws nearer! And go out and vote!
