VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!: Having Fun During COVID-19
Coronavirus (COVID-19) didn’t take away your right, privilege, and duty to vote. You have a voice. And you should be heard when it comes to the health, safety, and the well-being of our community.
1) GO VOTE! — Find your polling center at: Vote.org (https://www.vote.org/polling-place-locator/)
2) I VOTED! — Congratulations for using your civil right and duty. Isn’t early voting and voting by mail amazing! Wear your “I voted” sticker with pride and remind others to vote by social media.
3) Listen To Me — Your power is your vote. Elections are about decisions. If you don’t vote, you allow others to decide for you.
4) Elections Have Consequences — Are you happy about how the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has been handled? How is your work life these days? Do you feel your child is in a safe learning environment? Who do you want to represent you?
5) Paying the Bills — You’re paying for this. This is your chance to hire the right person for the job. Who will improve your healthcare, fix the roads, educate your child? It’s your money.
6) Friends, Family, Neighbors, Kids, and Community — They are all counting on you. Too many people are denied the right to vote and countless people through the centuries fought and died for this sacred civic duty. By voting, you’re honoring the ideal of freedom and democracy.
AND DON’T FORGET TO HAVE FUN! And, please feel free to contact if you have any questions or suggestions!

Mike Kraus was born on the industrial shoreline of Muskegon, Michigan. After earning his Fine Arts Degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he attended Grand Valley State University for his graduate degree. From there, he gained varied experiences from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, Art Institute of Chicago, Hauenstein Center For Presidential Studies, Lollypop Farm Humane Society, and the Children’s Memorial Foundation. And every place he worked, he had his sketchbook with him and found ways to be actively creative. In 2014, Kraus became a full-time artist by establishing Mike Kraus Art. Since then, he has sold hundreds of paintings that are displayed in nearly every state and dozens of countries. Currently, Kraus lives in Rochester, New York with his beautiful wife and goofy dog.
