Why Vote?

  • Voting is a fundamental right of the United States of America
  • It is the most important and direct way for citizens to participate in their democracy, both on the national and community level. It keeps you informed about what has happened, and empowers you to use your voice to impact the future.
  • Voting allows each individual to make their voice heard for how their country, state, and community should be run
  • Voting is a right for which many people have fought and died throughout our country’s history. Women have only been able to vote since 1920. Non-whites have only been guaranteed the vote since the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
  • The fundamental right of voting is a privilege for all American citizens.   Voting gives thanks to those who have struggled, and who struggle today, for voting rights.
  • Since many of you have recently turned 18, it is especially important for you to get registered and make your vote count!
