Have you voted yet??
[1.] if you don't vote... don't even think about complaining!
[2.] vote to counter-act a friend or family member who you disagree with politically!
[3.] it's your right & it doesn't take a lot of time!
[4.] you represent a combination of interests unique to only you - it's an easy way for your voice to be heard!
[5.] communities with a higher number of registered voters get more attention from politicians!
[6.] young people are notorious for skipping out on elections & the biggest election issues often directly effect the youth of the nation... break the stereotype!
[7.] going along with #6... politicians want to be re-elected and thus represent the people that are registered to vote. if college students are not registered to vote they will feel no responsibility to fund higher education and financial aid programs!
[8.] it's your responsibility as an active citizen! our forefathers (and foremothers) fought wars and staged protests to gain the right to vote and govern themselves - we can spare a few minutes!
[9.] our government was designed for citizen participation, so if you don't vote - other people are going to make the decisions for you!
[10.] believe it or not, people just like you in other countries actually fight and even die for the right to vote... it's a valuable gift that you should take advantage of!
