Make sure to Vote on
November 5th, 2013!!!
Many people today think voting is the most
important right Americans have.
There are many places in the world where people
do not have the right to vote.
By voting, people can make sure that their opinion
is shared with community leaders.
If you are a citizen of the United States and eighteen
or older, you have the right tovote in local,
state and national elections.
People vote for a number of reasons.
They vote to decide how their cities, counties,
states and the country should be governed and by whom.
No matter what the issue, voting gives people a say
in how things are to be done.
But one of the biggest political problems in the United States
today is the lack of voter turnout.
In the 2000 election, just over half the population (51%) voted.
As you can see, the people who did not vote were giving
up a chance to make a difference
An informed voter is the best kind of voter.
Stay up to date on local and national elections with the
Web, TV coverage, newspapers, and magazines.
When you know the issues and the facts, you’re
better able to talk to others about them,
and you’ll be more than ready when it comes
time to vote in the election.
