Why You Should Vote?
Posted by LaDale Anderson on Oct 4, 2012 - 2:24:42 PM

UNITED STATES—By now everyone is well aware that 2012 is an election year and a very important one at that as many of us will head to the polls to cast our vote for President.  It seems people only care about voting when it involves the presidency.   The bad thing about elections is not everyone heads to the polls to vote.  It is your given right as an American citizen to let your voice be heard.  Do not listen to the pundits who are predicting this side or that side to win and because of that you believe your vote has not effect. Your vote has power; it’s your voice being heard.

 

The only reason you should not vote is if you absolutely CANNOT vote; in other words you would have to be on your deathbed, but even then I’d request the ballot to be brought to me.  People literally fought for their lives to have the right to vote, show it’s not something that should be taken lightly.  Who cares if the lines are long or the fact that it’s raining outside or the notion that you have to go to work?  Heck, I think companies should even encourage their employees to vote, by allowing them to have the day off or not being as strict if someone is late because they had to cast their ballot to vote.  

 

So this is my calling to all Americans who are registered voters.  You have the right to vote, let your voice be heard on Tuesday, November 6 when you head to the polls.  Be sure to do your research on the candidates and proposals before casting your vote so you are aware of all the issues.
