Yeah, registering and waiting in line at the polls can be a hassle, but it is a small price to pay for the right to vote.

Politico Facts:

  1. In 2008 only 54.5% of us registered and voted in 2008. That means nearly half didn’t embrace the right to vote. By 2015 we will grow to become nearly 1/3 of the electorate! Our generation is the largest and most diverse demographic in the U.S., just imagine what we can do together!
  2. Reliable information can be hard to find, and difficult to understand. But these issues usually affect you directly, whether it is immediate or gradual. So take control of what you stand for and let your voice be heard!
  3. The reason a democracy is so great, is because of the harmony between the people and the government. What sets our government apart is the right to speak up, disagree, be different and make a change if we want to take action.
  4. The right to vote is a beautiful thing. It really is. Young people and other demographics in parts of the world actually fight and would even die for the right to vote. One day you could wake up in a country where you can’t. Enough said!
See you at the polls!!
