Look Beyond Summer. You Matter. And so does your vote.
Voting is one of those things I hear young people say doesn’t really matter. This could not be further from the truth. Yes, I know the person who is in office won because of the electoral college. And yes, you are right he should not really be there. So, why does your vote matter?
Vote For Change
Do you want things to change, like, I mean, REALLY change? If so, you need to vote for everything, not just the president. You have to vote in every single election. This is the best way to be heard. And in my opinion these other elections are even more important. Why? Because these local and state governments are what we are effected by the most. Your state representatives are the ones who are going to the electoral college. They are the ones who are making the laws that change your life. So Yes, your vote from the bottom matters more than you think.
Voting is something that I am so proud to do. It is my proudest moment as an American. I get to have my voice heard right there on the ballot that I have filled out. Nothing matters more to me than the direction that this country is going. Why? Well because I will be living in this country for many years to come. And I recognize that my future children will be directly effected by the things that we as a generation get do, TODAY.
Vote To Set An Example
When we vote we set the example for the next generation. Let’s not take this great privilege that we are endowed with away from them. Let’s get them excited to vote. Let’s teach them that we have to do our research. And let’s teach them that making changes, can be difficult. We are talking about this year and many similar ones. Because I understand it’s frustrating.
However, if we do not make a big deal about every single election no matter how big or small we will never go the direction that we want. And our children will have to continue this fight that we have been in for generations. So let’s break the cycle.
Vote Because It Is Your Country To Care For
And we must also remember that this is our country. So if we don’t like the way things are going, it is our job to send a pink slip out via the voting booth. If you don’t like what your representatives are doing for your community. Head to the polls and vote them out. We as a people have to quit complaining about things and then doing nothing about it. Yes, it is frustrating that we have to keep going through these things, however, if we do nothing we will just keep having the same issues. We will keep having to fight the same fights. We will keep passing these problems down to the generations that follow us.
Vote Because it is Unselfish
Voting is one of the most unselfish things that you can do. I know that it does not always seem like our voices matter. Instead of this being a deterrent from voting use it to be the reason that you go vote.
Because the things in our world are messed up is the WHY you need to storm the voting booth.
Vote To Support The Protests
We are storming the streets to insight change and to see that and being apart of it is amazing! However, it is just not enough. The people in office do not care and the ones who do are in the minority so nothing can be done. The representatives who are trying to change things are counting on you to go to the polls. Not just this November, but every single time there is an election.
Vote To Show You Are In Charge
It is time that we show our representatives and the corporations who is really in charge. And it is time that we show the world that these issues matter. That we are going to do what ever we have to to make sure that the change that needs to come is going to. It is time that we show the next generation that we care. That this matters and we will do whatever we have to do to not only make our vote matter, but we will make their vote matter too. It is time to believe that we have to do more.
And It’s time that YOU believe that YOUR VOTE MATTERS! Register via Rock The Vote here! Let’s win this!
