Voting is very important in our country. By voting, people are able to have their voices heard. They can help choose a party’s candidates in a primary election. They can help decide which candidate will win the office that is being contested. In some cases, people are able to vote on a referendum that will allow for tax limits to be increased or for laws to take effect. By voting, people are able to have their voices heard.

When people don’t vote, they aren’t exercising one of their responsibilities as a citizen of our country. There are people throughout the world that are fighting for the opportunity to elect their leaders. In many countries, people aren’t able to elect their leaders. We should not take this responsibility lightly. Additionally, when a person doesn’t vote, they have no right to complain about the leaders or their actions. By voting, people are making sure their voices are being heard.
