Why should you Vote?
People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote – a very different thing.” Walter H. Judd
- You live in a democracy and that means that you get a say in who runs your country and how your country is run.
- Voting shows your pride in your nation.
- The only way democracy works is if citizens, young and old, are active participants.
- Our country is a beacon of liberty for the rest of the world, stand up and be counted!
- A government, by the people – for the people, just can’t work without the people!
- And, If you don’t vote you really have no right to complain about government decisions you don’t like (no matter how bad those decisions are)
