The importance of Voting

Nahla Ortega, Writer

This election year it is vital that people go vote. November 4th is election day. The people of the United states will vote for a new president. Voting is a right not a privilege. If the people of the United States want to see change in our country, they need to be that change. Voting is a civic duty for your parents.

 

American citizens that are over the age of 18 are entitled to vote in federal and state elections, but voting was not always a right for all Americans. Your parents’ vote may not directly elect the president, but if their vote join’s enough others in your voting district, their vote matters when it comes to electoral votes.

 

Talk to your parents about the importance of voting this presidential election and ask them to spread the word. They can make a difference. Together as a nation let’s elect the next president of the united states.
