10 Reasons to Vote

1. So you can complain

If you love to complain in order to see changes, voting is for you. 

2. It’s your right

Others died for this privilege and now it’s your right. 

3. Representation

Who’s representing you? Find out and make sure your concerns are their concerns. 

4. It’s your duty

“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” - John F. Kennedy. 

5. More federal money …

for higher education funding, youth programs, the environment, HIV/AIDS or breast cancer research, whatever your cause.

6. To cancel out someone’s vote

In disagreement with your parents or friends on certain issues? Cancel them out.

7. To bust the stereotype

Young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 are said to not care about the issues. Prove them wrong!

8. If you don’t, someone else will

Why would you want someone else deciding what’s best for you?

9. Every vote counts

Remember the 2000 Election controversy?

10. Make some noise!

Your opinions matter. It’s time to be heard.
If you have not voted early, please go vote tomorrow. It is our civic duty, and we cant afford to lose that right because we are too lazy to go vote.

Bravo! BUT, if you are LGBT the most important reason of all to vote is to prevent the clock being turned back to the early 1990s or even back to Stonewall in this nation and/or individual states where the forces of reaction and bigotry are just waiting to gain validation and support from a Romney victory.
