Why should we vote? Because some have made great sacrifices for the right to vote. Among them: civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr. and Medgar Evers, who made the ultimate sacrifice and Fannie Lou Hamer, who was beaten, lost her job and her house for insisting she had the right to vote in Mississippi! Because in 1845, one vote brought Texas into the Union. Because in 1996, among the world's 20 biggest democracies, voter turnout in the U.S. was lower than every country except Switzerland. Belgium was top of the list with 94 percent.
This quote says perfectly why we should all vote, "You may not wish to deal with government, but often there isn't a choice. You might as well do it right."-- Robert M. Mill
