The "you gotta be in it to win it" motto (usually reserved for the lotto) has taken on a new meaning as the US' November 6 midterm elections draw nearer.
While social media is usually filled with netizens telling half-truths about what they'd use the winnings for, there has been a surprising increase in rhetoric comparing the long ticket line in the grocery store to the wait at one's local polling place.
You bought a lottery ticket huh? Rushed out there and grabbed one in hopes it could make your life better? Even though your one ticket might not win, you did it anyway cause it’s worth a shot, right?- devon sawa (@DevonESawa) October 20, 2018
So did you vote?
The somewhat preemptive voter shaming comes amid multiple reports of voter suppression through methods ranging from online registration malfunctions to a reduction in polling locations.
