The Importance of Voting in America
Elected officials determine legislation that affects citizens on both a national and local level, so it’s important to participate in the electoral process.
The following are some important reasons why citizens should vote in the upcoming election:
• Every vote counts. Many people don’t believe that their vote will matter much in the grand scheme of things, but this is simply not true. If every disbeliever came out to vote, this could make a huge difference in the outcome of an election. Remember, there is power in numbers.
• Democracy only works if we vote. American citizens are lucky enough to live in a country where they have the right to vote for lawmakers and determine the path of the country’s future. If no one votes, politicians would be able to do whatever they pleased with no consequences and democracy would crumble.
• Shape policy. Everyone has a view on how the nation should be run in regards to topics such as foreign policy, economic policy, healthcare, the environment and social issues. The president and congress determine legislation for these issues, which have a huge impact on our lives, so it’s important to elect individuals who are representative of the population.
• Honor sacrifices. Military members, suffrage activists and civil rights activists have fought hard battles throughout history to ensure that individual freedoms are protected, including the right to vote. By heading to the polls on Election Day, citizens can show appreciation for their sacrifices.
As citizens of America, it is important to uphold the values of the nation by researching the issues and casting votes for officials that are representative of the population. Set a time aside on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 to visit the polls and fill out a ballot.
During election season, there are bumper stickers, yard signs, pamphlets, flyers, t-shirts and other political materials for various local, state and national candidates. Legislative aids and volunteers have these materials stored all over the place from offices to homes to cars, creating a huge amount of disorganization. Campaigns in Arizona this season have Flagstaff storage units available to them to keep all political promotional materials in one place. In addition to organizing campaign supplies, Flagstaff storage units also work well for storage of other seasonal items such as holiday decorations and sports equipment.
