Why vote when you are just one person among millions? Here's a compelling reason: If you care about your future and want the best things for your friends, your family, other people, and the environment, you should vote in every election.
Most U.S. citizens who are 18 or over have the right to be part of the political decision-making process that impacts all of us. Why would you ignore that enormous privilege? Our right to vote is fundamental to our way of life. It's why many Americans believe that not voting equals not caring. Simply put, it is our responsibility to vote because our freedom to pursue happiness depends on having a functional, representative democracy. The system only works if we participate in it.
So if you're an eligible American citizen, make sure you vote by next Tuesday.
