The time to vote is just around the corner

I am sure many of our clients watched the presidential debate last night as Brett & I did. I know for myself I really have taken the right to vote for granted and haven’t put much thought into it in previous years. Regardless of which way you vote or who you are voting for it is very important to express that right.

I know a lot of my newlyweds will need some info because ya’ll have just moved or name changes etc.

Thanks Holly Lollar for providing this to me!
