If you’re feeling jaded or overwhelmed by all the election talk, or feeling like your vote doesn’t count,* it’s important to remember that this election isn’t just about polarized, big-name candidates. This election also impacts what goes on in your state. Even in your county.
To fellow North Carolinians: Do you have feelings about HB2 and other choices made by our current governor? What about schools, museums, and libraries? Do you want to make sure there’s a candidate representing your opinions in both the U.S. and State Senates? You don’t have to know everything about every candidate for every office, but this is your chance to speak up on issues that make a difference in your life and the lives of others. It’s not fun to stand in polling lines, but there is satisfaction in knowing you’ve done your part to try to improve our government for the greater good. So go vote!

*This article does a great job explaining why the election is not rigged.
It’s been a great year. That’s how it feels at least — we haven’t had much time to review yet. Hopefully everyone out there will find some down time. Time to reflect and look at a few things before being consumed with the shininess that is 2015. Everyone at Registered Creative will definitely be some degree of downtime. We’ll officially close our offices tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. and then remain closed until January 5, 2015. It’s a chance to spend time with friends and family. A time to recharge so we’re ready for everything 2015 has in store.
Amazing that I just typed “2015” and it’s an actual thing. In less than two weeks.
Of course, we’ll have some coverage during that time. Emails will be checked, if only sporadically. Voicemail gets distributed. In the grand scheme of communication urgency: A phone call ups the ante.
You really should. In fact, our office is closed to make sure everyone can get out there and cast their ballot. Happy Election Day.
On Monday, November 11th, we will be closed to honor the men and women who chose to serve in the U.S. armed forces. Their decision has allowed us all many freedoms. We hope you will join us in remembering them with solemn reflection, thanking them with sincere gratitude and setting aside any politics long enough to remember that we are all Americans because of them.
See you Tuesday.
We’re going to shut down the office Thursday and Friday this week in honor of independence, summer and fireworks. See you Monday.
Our offices will be closed for Martin Luther King Day—January 21, 2013. We’ll be back in the swing of things on Tuesday though.
