This year people have become very vocal online, especially with most people spending extended periods of time at home due to the pandemic. But it seems like everywhere you turn now people want to let you know how they stand politically. While everyone has the right to make their own decisions and have their own beliefs it's alarming the amount of anger in our country right now regarding the election.

We have heard so many celebrities, musicians, and business owners across the nation speak about their political views online or any other platform they can use to spread their beliefs. And this morning we had a local business (Octopus Coffee) located on Horizon Drive in Grand Junction post online with their business owners' thoughts on the election and urged his customers to vote for who he is voting for.

Obviously, who you vote for and why you vote for that candidate is completely your decision. And here in Grand Junction, it's clear that both sides are represented, but I would hope that if you are voting you would do more research and put more thought into your decision than just voting because you had a friend or business owner tell you to do so.

No one is sure how long it will be until a final decision on who our next President of the United States will be, but hopefully, that decision will be made peacefully. And if you're still not sure who you're voting for, I am sure your friends on social media will point you in the right direction.
