Why Voting Matters List

story by Tomi Clark

Politics, delegates, campaign, president. Debates, candidates, liberty, elections. Being able to vote is a luxury, a freedom. So seize the opportunity and vote in the 2016 presidential election. Here are 20 reasons why you should step up to the ballot and vote…

— Voting matters because you can voice your opinions, and you have the ability to act on those opinions.

— It’s a responsibility of a citizen of the United States who is 18 years or older.

— You have a right other people do not have. Parts of the world can’t even imagine being able to choose; take pride in voting.

— Your vote always counts…remember that.

— Don’t let yourself regret not voting.

— You live in democracy, be thankful that it’s not the opposite.

— Voting was a hard-earned right. Give respect to the people who fought for it.

— If you are old enough and simply choose not to, then you must be happy with either candidate, which means you cannot complain.

— On the other hand, if you do vote, you can complain all you want.

— Your vote may just be one mere vote, but so is everybody else’s.

— There is no expertise in voting; vote for whom you agree with most.

— It’s only two choices: two people with opposing and diverse opinions — pick your cup of tea.

— There are many locations around here that you can vote, but make sure you research where your location is.

— You can vote in minutes during your free time on Election Day.

— Be a part of the other millions voting.

— Voting gives power to the people and states.

— If you do not know enough about the candidates, turn the TV onto the news, or listen to a debate for a few minutes. Or pull out your phone and read an article or two revolving around the election. Educate yourself.

— Just think: if voting didn’t change anything, consider the things we wouldn’t have today.

— Don’t waste this opportunity.

— If you don’t care to vote, vote anyway.

You have been informed about voting, so now you have no excuse to why you can’t vote. So for this year’s 2016 election, who will it be? Trump or Clinton? Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016, will be the day.
