Voting is a political right that not everyone is fortunate enough to have. It is a privilege that many Americans do not take advantage of. It really does blow my mind that people refuse their opportunity of choosing our future leaders who will have an impact on many lives.The most critical thing about all of it is that the people who didn’t vote actually have the nerve to complain about current political leaders or leadership. If you do not vote, you share the blame for the way the political system is going.

Voting is something that should not pass us by. Many people sacrificed a lot to have the right to vote. They began giving out rights in 1870 when “a vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.” A long while after in 1920, the nineteenth amendment passed allowing women to vote. Four years later, the Indian Citizenship Act passed giving all natives born in America the right to vote.

Why wouldn’t you want to take advantage of your political voice? Take action to have an educated vote that can benefit you or the environment around you. Many people do not know that Obama set a U.S. record when he received a total count of sixty-nine million votes. Part of the reason that he blew McCain off the charts was because he had the millennials’ support and vote.
