It is officially 2016 and for many of us that means making New Year’s resolutions! Some of you may want to become more politically active this year, but are not really sure where to start. Here are 6 simple things that you can do throughout the year to be more involved with politics:
1) Register to vote–and actually vote!
Now that it’s finally 2016, election season is here and it’s time to start thinking about a new president! Make sure you’re registered to vote so that you can get to the polls on all election days. Voting is extremely important so that your voice is heard, whether that be for presidential or local elections!
2) Do your research
Constantly reading up on current issues and events, as well as what’s going on with political candidates, will definitely make you a better activist.
3) Apply to be a contributor/writer
This is one of the best things you can do to be more politically active. It is a perfect way for your conservative voice to be heard when you don’t think anyone is listening. You will also get the chance to connect with like-minded people and possibly meet some life-long friends in the process. This is also a great step if you think that writing is a career path you want to pursue.
