Comments From People Who Vote
I never really ever voted in my life but after being informed on how important it was and doing my reaserch. I vote every year!
You may think your vote dosn't count but I assure you it does! EVERY VOTE COUNTS!!!
I was sick of seeing the Caloosahatchee river being polluted every year! I voted for a mayor that would take a stand against this!
Why do we vote ?
Franklin Roosevelt best answered this question by saying “Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.”
Voting is a privilege, it’s a chance for us to help make positive changes. Voting is one of the most effective ways to make lasting and beneficial changes to society. Voting seems inconvenient, time-consuming and sometimes pointless. You have to set aside time to study the each candidate’s views and beliefs. Who has time for that? Then on the actual election day, you may need to leave work, stand in long lines and nowadays wear a mask. And as your standing in line, you might be thinking that your one vote doesn’t matter that much. Well your wrong. Look at some of the closest elections in U.S. history, some presidents have won by a small margin often requiring a recount. For example, Gore vs. Bush in the year 2000. Bush won, but it came down to a recount in Florida where Bush won by only 537 votes. Even though Your single vote might not get the President elected, if your vote joins enough others in your voting district or county, then your vote definitely matters when it comes to the electoral results. Most states have a winner- take -all policy where the popular vote winner gets the state’s electoral votes. Therefore, exercise your rights and go out and vote this year!
