"Get out the Vote"
16.1 - "Get out the Vote"
Have you ever stopped to think why so many people fail to vote?
The California Voter Foundation (CVF) results:
- The non-voters: are young, single, less educated and more likely to be of an ethnic minority than infrequent and frequent voters. 76% of nonvoters have less than a college degree.
- It Just Takes Too Long (Ironic?)
- Too busy: 23 or 28% say they are too busy
-> Even non-voters say voting is important
-> Family and friends are important in the moment of encouraging others to vote
Our future! Let's make History!
Many Americans are turning 18 every day!
We have the freedom to speak our minds, share our opinions... most important: choose our own government! If we come together and all take the advantage that is given to us, we would have the ability to make our voices heard. We would all shape our country's history!
