Whatever political party you side with, in this election it is even more important than ever to use your fundamental right to vote. Change comes from action.
According to a recent article in USA TODAY, a Suffolk University Poll surveyed Americans who say there is a no better than 50-50 chance they will vote in the presidential race in November.
The report also predicts that a staggering 90 million Americans who could vote won’t.
“The long-term trend tends to be awful,” Gans says. “There’s a lot of lack of trust in our leaders, a lack of positive feelings about political institutions, a lack of quality education for large segments of the public, a lack of civic education, the fragmenting effects of waves of communications technology, the cynicism of the coverage of politics — I could go on with a long litany.”
Even in 2008, when turnout was the highest in any presidential election since 1960, almost 80 million eligible citizens didn’t vote.
It is time to rock your vote and let your voice be heard!
