1. Close Calls: If you don’t vote, others are making the decisions for you without your input. Even in presidential elections, one vote can be the difference between winning and losing (AKA – Florida 2000).
2. Voting as a Change Agent: Policy many times will not be changed without a change in elected officials. So if you don’t like the current state of affairs, voting gives you a tool to fix issues.
3. Our Future: I vote so things will be a little better for generations to come and as a signal that our country is great when all citizens participate.
