Election Day 2020 has arrived. What has been declared the most important election in the history of the United States is upon us.
If you didn’t vote early or by mail, please get out and vote. Exercise your right to not only have your voice heard but to stand up and be counted.
If you’ve already voted, encourage your family, friends and coworkers to vote. Be supportive of first-time voters.
Visit Vote.org for state-specific rules, to locate your polling place, and other helpful Election Day information.
As soul-crushing as 2020 has been at times, remember that your vote does count—it isn’t pointless. The all-powerful, shadowy “they” want us to believe otherwise. They want you to away from polling places, to ignore your mail-in ballot. Don’t give them the satisfaction.
After you’ve voted, take time to once again make your voice heard about the RESTAURANTS Act. No more excuses, no more empty gestures—it’s time for those who represent us to save our trillion-dollar industry and the millions upon millions of people it employs. Keep up the pressure on the politicians.
Be safe today. Be careful today. Be heard today.
I’ve been studying and writing about the hospitality industry since 2006. Like so many people, I started my journey in this business by working as a host, server and bartender. I was introduced to nightlife in Chicago, learning the ins and outs of nightclubs and after-hours hot spots.
After moving to Las Vegas nearly 20 years ago, I both co-owned a valet company and helped promote the club it serviced. That led to me taking on the role of editor for a Las Vegas hospitality industry publication.
A few short years later, I continued along my journey of hospitality industry reporting. I went from contributing to a major industry outlet to taking on the role of editor and content curator.
