When deciding "who to vote for," there are many VARIABLES to consider. The political dialogue that we establish openly in every city should be ongoing and transparent. Every candidate should be given a chance at City Hall to speak for herself.
It's important to KNOW what Strengths you're looking for in a Candidate. WHO DESERVES YOUR VOTE FOR THE POSITION THE CANDIDATE IS VYING FOR?
Take you time to Research their stance on issues you care about. Learn about their leadership skills. Does the person listen? COMPARE, ASK, LISTEN TO CANDIDATES.

A study has found that ethnic and economic variables are minor features of voting that do not influence how people vote. (I do not think that is true). PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW CANDIDATES HAVE WORKED FOR WHAT THEY ARE (NOT WHAT THEY HAVE) AND HAVE A PROVEN RECORD OF BEING WHAT THEY CLAIM.
The field that studies the psychology of voting is called “ electoral psychology,” and it looks at the factors that may influence an individual in their voting choices and whether or not they choose to vote at all. Such factors may include questions of personal identity, ethics, and emotional responses.

So we may not know how we got here— all the way.
First we came from Europe, took out the ones already here, appropriated the land that belonged to them, and called it "Manifest Destiny." Then institutionalized the European culture and called it "mainstream." We purchased human beings to work for generational enslavement at capitalist enterprises that created generational wealth which continues to control politics, production and productivity.
Once there was blood! And slavery was abolished. And there has been more and more blood shed over and again. But the only ones who receive reparations are those who finance the wheels of destruction, the multi corporal entities whose tentacles make and break the world.
Throughout the 20th and with much sacrifice, the workers, laborers. handicapped, disabled, women, LGBT, indigenous people, humans of any ethnicity and condition, the Earth itself, have fought for and earned some respect in a country where state is said to be free from religious dogma and media's agendas are free to the highest bidder. In a world where interdependence is also inter-responsibility.
Now, not just the freed men and women once , but the ones that continued to arrive across rivers, oceans, and straits to get splashed by the shower of plenty have become "We The people" who if they survive, can vote in 5 to 7 years.

Ask yourself why you get up in the morning every day and earn your wage, or are you one of the 10 percent who instead watches over your golden eggs? Whatever the case may be, it behooves us all to know how it is we bring about our COLLECTIVE present.

In all 50 states, the share of non-Hispanic White eligible voters declined between 2000 and 2018, with 10 states experiencing double-digit drops in the share of White eligible voters. During that same period, Hispanic voters have come to make up increasingly larger shares of the electorate in every state. These gains are particularly large in the Southwestern U.S., where states like Nevada, California and Texas have seen rapid growth in the Hispanic share of the electorate over an 18-year period.1
These trends are also particularly notable in battleground states – such as Florida and Arizona – that are likely to be crucial in deciding the 2020 election.2 In Florida, two-in-ten eligible voters in 2018 were Hispanic, nearly double the share in 2000. And in the emerging battleground state of Arizona, Hispanic adults made up about one-quarter (24%) of all eligible voters in 2018, up 8 percentage points since 2000.
