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)
