Even if you’re ‘uncertain’ of who you want for president, ‘Braxton Family Value’ stars Trina and Towanda Braxton explained why it’s still ‘important’ to vote during an EXCLUSIVE interview on HollywoodLife’s podcast.
For Braxton Family Values stars Trina and Towanda Braxton, voting is about much more than deciding who should be president. This is why the sisters encouraged their many fans to fill out their ballots — and why it’s so “important” to do so — during an EXCLUSIVE interview on the Oct. 29 episode of HollywoodLife’s podcast.
“I will encourage everyone to go vote even if you’re uncertain of who you want to vote for as president,” Towanda told HollywoodLife. She explained, “The most important thing is to vote, period. For the Congress, for the Senate, for your local sheriff. Whoever is going to be in the sheriff’s chair, or all the amendments that’s going on right now in your county. [You’ve] got to make sure you study those and vote, vote vote. Because it’s bigger than just the president.”
Trina added to her sister’s advice, saying to make sure that you’re “voting for the person whose voice represents you the most.” However, Trina revealed that she hasn’t cast her ballot just yet. “I am waiting. Because I’m gonna be honest about it. I don’t trust what’s happening,” Trina admitted, amid nationwide concerns over mail-in ballots in regards to delayed deliveries and tampered ballots.
“I don’t trust what’s going on,” Trina continued. “I’m sure like all these free votes, something’s going to happen with them. I want to vote on voting day.” Towanda, meanwhile, revealed that she has already casted her vote (and noted that she “always” votes early). Towanda also shared her sister’s doubts over mail-in ballots, though, which is why she “stood in line and actually voted.”
“It was just good to see the turnout,” Towanda recalled of her voting experience, which entailed waiting about an hour in line (she clarified that other areas in her home base of Atlanta, though, take only about 15 minutes “to go in and get out” — it all depends on your local polling center). Towanda was impressed with the numbers of voters she saw, adding, “I was just glad that people actually came out to vote. I think this is going to be the best turnout ever.”
Whether or not you choose to vote in person or over mail, Towanda made it clear that “it’s important for everyone to go and vote” — “by any means necessary.” And HollywoodLife wants to make it easier for you to do so!
