On Nov. 8, 2016, Donald Trump was elected president by 26 percent of eligible US voters. The United States has one of the lowest voter participation rates of all developed countries. A final report of Nonprofit Vote and US Elections Project found 60 percent of eligible Americans voted. Here in Warren County, in door-to-door canvassing last summer and fall, we Democrats met many people who stated simply and without apology: “I don’t vote.”
Here’s why we think it’s important. When you vote, you are taking a stand on the water you drink, the air you breathe, and the food you eat. Your vote affects the quality of our schools and the right to live without fear in your community. It’s about funding your local library, maintaining roads and bridges, and being sure when you call 911 that help will come. What you tell your legislators with your vote is important. For example, do you believe young people should have access to public universities or vocational education without taking on crippling debt? Your family’s well being and that of your neighbor is tied to your vote.
When we are too busy or alienated to bother, when we are not concerned about the suppression of voting rights for our fellow citizens, we endanger ourselves and each other.
