To all German readers: Today is Election Day and it is important for each and everyone of you to make your voice heard. Every vote counts. Just remember that in other countries, many people do not get to exercise this basic democratic right - we are very lucky to be able to go to vote without having to face any repercussions, be scared we could have our fingers cut off and other terrible things. I am not asking you to share my point of view or to vote for any specific party. Just make sure you do vote, because YOUR vote counts!
