The United States of America was built on the principles of guaranteeing the rights of all citizens. While the U.S. has taken decades to deliver such promises in the Constitution to both woman and people of color, today we are facing a new challenge: not enough votes.
With millions of millennials under the age of 30, it is quite shocking to ask why a majority of the youth choose not to vote. In this guide, we will discuss why it matters.
Here are four reasons why every citizen should vote.
Citizens Are What Shapes the Future of the Country
The youth must understand that what election comes today will be the next step for the future tomorrow. When we focus on high tech gadgets and fashion, failing to vote will steal our power to make informed decisions about our leaders and the law. These laws that we vote for are what leads society for decades. You will be sure that those votes will either make or break the future laws.
Voting Is Your Right
As legal citizens, it is our right to vote for issues and policies that we feeling strongly about. In other countries citizens has no right to share their voice and vote. That is why we must use our rights to vote on issues that may change our future and the next generations to come.
Voting Keeps You Engaged in Current Political Events
Starting as a young age, you will have the privilege to vote for the rest of your life. That means you must have a thorough knowledge of what are the current issues, laws, and who is leading the polls.
Not Voting Will Lose Your Right to Complain About Current Matters
When you choose not to vote, you will end up losing your privilege to complain about the undesired president elect. Choosing not to vote will automatically forfeit your right to complain as voting demonstrates the faith to fight or your political choice.
Now more than ever, it is important for the youth to vote and take advantage of their legal rights. This will create a strong future and set the precedent for the next generation.
