Why Vote?

"By voting we add our voice to the chorus that forms opinions and the basis for actions."

-- Jens Stoltenberg

According to the California Secretary of State, "In the general election of 2014 voter turnout among California’s youth was one of the worst in California’s history; only 52% of eligible youth were registered to vote, which was more than 20 points below any other age group, and only 8% of eligible youth aged 18-24 voted" (CA SOS). If you do not vote, your community may not be heard!

The Ethics of Voting - Jason Brennan
"When we vote, we can make government better or worse. In turn, our votes can make people’s lives better or worse. If we make bad choices at the polls, we get racist, sexist, and homophobic laws. Economic opportunities vanish or fail to materialize. We fight unjust and unnecessary wars."
