Voting is one of the most important “Right” provided by our constitution to our citizens, the opportunity to have a choice in choosing who leads us. But some of us do not value that option when we fail to exercise our right to vote. It is very easy to take the ‘whatever attitude or who cares’ about this great responsibility.

But how many know that this is a privilege for us to have a say how we want the government to operate?
The youth vote is sadly underestimated by party analysts, and the trend analysts who are entrusted with targeting the party’s advertising dollars and public relations efforts traditionally over look the youth market.

Voting is a tremendous privilege, it represents our God-given right to freedom and our wisdom to have a say in the decisions that affect us. It also reflects our appreciation for the sacrifices our ancestors have made and the hardships they have endured.

It only takes a few minutes, and even that step is likely to go noticed to those who are watching. In my opinion a few minutes out of your day is a small price to pay for the right to vote.
