I’m not going to say that your vote counts. For the presidential election, your vote counts more if you live in Florida or Ohio. Your vote in a solidly red or blue state like Massachusetts or Texas counts less. However, there are likely plenty of other competitive races on your ballot, besides the presidential election.
Regardless of the outcome, I think we will all be thankful that the political advertising will disappear until the next election cycle.
For investment advisers and private fund managers, you need to remember to keep track of political campaign contributions to comply with Rule 206(4)-5.
