Saying this is the most important presidential election of our lives is probably the oldest cliché in the history of American politics. But there’s no denying that, for obvious reasons, this was the case in 1800, 1860, 1960, and 2008; and is also the case in 2020.
Ironically, nothing demonstrated this quite like trying to get a Nigerian friend to talk about his country’s #EndSARS protests, only to have him deflect to talk about this US presidential election.
This is why no citizen worth their salt should let it go by without participating. But, if you’re still trying to decide whom to vote for, you are probably just too stupid to vote.
This is also why today's talk focuses more on the importance of voting early and in person than on the reasons why it’s better to vote for Joe Biden than Donald Trump.
