9 Excuses For Not Voting… That Won’t Fly Anymore

There are over 12.2 million Latinos that are not registered to vote. That means 12.2 million Latino voices have been put on mute because someone else has decided their future for them.

Lame people have a million excuses for not registering to vote, but they’re all bullsh*t now.

No more excuses. Muahahahaha! ?

Because with the new mitú LatinosVote (yes, without the space) registration app, none of the following excuses are valid…

When creating the app, mitú founder Beatriz Acevedo made sure registering would be made fast and easy. “We could not have made registering to vote easier! In less time than you heat up a tamal, unwrap it and eat it, you can download the app and register to vote!”  Yassss, queen! ??

2. It’s complicated.

Please, you’re on your phone all day anyway and it’s easier to navigate than looking for your go-to emoji.

4. I’ll do it tomorrow.

Just like you said about working out. Take out your phone and do it. Now!

5. I have better things to do.

Is that the best you got?

6. I don’t know where to register.

You’re running out of excuses.

8. I don’t have a pencil to fill out the form.

That’s cute. No need for that. Technology is an amazing thing, isn’t it?

9. I probably need to answer a million questions.

Nope, the questions are as easy as the ones you see above.

As Beatriz says, “3 minutes is a great investment to decide our future and the future of our families!” We couldn’t agree more.
