After more than a year of politicking, a record-smashing turn out is predicted in next Tuesday’s election. Early voting has already begun in many states. Do you plan to vote? Are you going to take part? There are lots of reasons why some don’t vote. If you are on the fence about voting in the 2020 general election, consider the reasons from a few others on why you should cast your ballot.
Thomas Jefferson: “We do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate"
Larry J. Sabato: “Every election is determined by the people who show up.”
Plato: “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.”
Susan B. Anthony: “Someone struggled for your right to vote. Use it.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower: “The future of this republic is in the hands of the American voter.”
