“Voting is important because it gives everyone a voice in matters that are most important to them.

“I believe voting is important because it’s both a right and a privilege that sets precedent for what will be achieved by our government.

“Voting is important because it is one of the most effective ways common people, like myself, can combat inequality and oppression.

“Voting is a direct way to represent the voices of people in America. If only the people that chose to vote, voted, it would be very biased, and can cause lots of problems for misrepresenting people

“Throughout the history of the US people have fought and lost their lives for the ability to simply cast a vote, to have equal rights, to be judged equitably, and to live peacefully. The right to vote is the very basis of a healthy democracy and it has been assaulted all through our history. I believe we have to continually organize to get the vote out under every and all circumstances. The goal is to keep working.”

“Voting is important because it's one of the most impactful things I can do for myself and my community. My vote is like my voice and in order to let it be heard, we must exercise our fundamental right as citizens.

“Voting is important because it helps advocate for yourself and your community. The myth that voting is not impactful is harmful because I believe voting really tells your representatives that you care about the topic, and you are civically engaged. Voting on a smaller level such as local and school board politics, would be the most visible and impactful.

"Voting is so SO important, while many of us do not have education in the government and policy field we all have our own topics of expertise. Providing our input on specific issues allows for numerous perspectives to be considered and to perhaps even propose new solutions. However, if voting is only geared to one demographic of people then we are never going to get to experience the diverse ideas found within our country.

Voting is incredibly important to me, especially in a nation where democracy is a pillar which we are built upon. Voting and the democratic process cannot function without the participation of all citizens equally.

“Voting is essential to participate in a democracy. It's how ordinary folks participate in government. By voting, you are choosing people to represent your beliefs, ideologies, and platforms you align with.
