It can’t be stress enough that it is a tremendous privilege to be able vote and that we should take this opportunity to have our voice heard!
To anyone who usually says: ”Ah, it doesn’t matter, what’s one vote.” Please remember that it only takes a straw to break a camel’s back and you could be that straw that tips an election one way or another.
To anyone who says: ”Ah, I don’t like either one of the leading candidates, so voting for the party I really want won’t matter, it’ll be like throwing my vote away anyway.” I implore you not to think this way. We are not the politicians, and we should not be playing “politics”. We want to show the parties, whether they have the most seats, or the least, what we really think is important.
And, to anyone who says: ”Ah, I don’t really know enough about the parties to vote.” Simple–just Google it. It is easier than ever to get information on party platforms and you can even take quizzes that will tell you which party you agree with most.
So, take the 15 minutes to drive to your local voting station today, on your lunch, or after work, (they’re open till 9:30pm so you can even stroll over after dinner) and just go vote.
