Here's what you need to know about registering to vote and understanding state primaries.

How To Register To Vote, And What Super Tuesday Is All About

Tuesday, March 2 is Super Tuesday for the 2020 presidential election- in other words, Tuesday, March 2 is one of the most important days in terms of determining our future president.

Super Tuesday is the day when the majority of states hold their primaries, meaning that this is when the majority of Americans will be voting for the candidate they want to get the nomination.

If you are of voting age, you should be one of them.

Here are the states holding primaries on Super Tuesday: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia. See your state listed here? Then get on it.

If your state is not listed here, your primary will likely take place in April, June, or August.

Remaining complacent during your state's primary means you are voiding your right to have an opinion. Remaining complacent means there is one less voice going into a decision that will affect all of us. You have power... so, use it.

Are you of voting age but haven't yet registered, or don't know how?

A quick Google search can let you know where your local election office is- you can register in person at that location.

Are you at college, or otherwise unable to register in person in your hometown? Not to fear!

Follow this link to access the National Mail Voter Registration Form. On that site, you may also filter the page based on your state for more specific instructions, as well as the appropriate mailing address for you.

Additionally, the majority of states also allow online voter registration. Visit this site to check if your state allows this, and if so, head here to complete the process.

In addition to making sure you are a registered voter, you need to be an informed voter. Don't go into elections blind. Watch the debates, do your research, and most importantly, be on the watch for misinformation.

Misinformation is a huge and dangerous issue, especially in today's political climate. Essentially, misinformation is false or inaccurate information, specifically that which is used intentionally to deceive those receiving it. You might know it based on the coined term "fake news". It can be incredibly misleading, and incessantly difficult to recognize. However, there are tricks that can help you distinguish between fact and fiction or partial truths.

NPR offers an immensely helpful article with five major tips that can help you stay educated, and avoid being easily swayed by misinformation. You can find it here.

Register, do your research, form your own opinions..... and vote.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
