The Importance of Voting

The reason to vote cannot be over stated. One man one vote says a lot. It puts each person on equal footing. A vote from a rich person has the same power as a poor person. Young people has the same right to be heard as their elders.

Voting give you the right and voice, to have the say, who will be the next most powerful leader in the world. It is the single most effective way to make your voice be heard. By not voting, you give away your right to influence the government overall.

In some cases now a days people hesitated to vote. They said that their vote won’t be that important anymore. They waited in long lines hoping that their candidate will be elected. But people think that it was all useless and a waste of time.

If the right to vote no longer existed, the country would no longer survive as a democratic nation, but completely totalitarian. When a person does not vote, that one individual citizen does not participate with the electoral process, as with any other voter, what would happen if no one voted. Our democracy would end.

Choose your candidate wisely. There are many issues to consider when casting your vote. So every vote has significance. Several elections have been decided by a single vote. So it is therefore important to vote to have your say about what happens to you and to the people in the nation.
