Why You Should Vote

The voter turnout for 18- to 29-year-olds in the last Presidential election was 19.9 percent, which is the lowest turnout for this age group in history. Why is it important to turn this trend around?

 

  • You're the only one who will vote for your demographic. Senior citizens come out to vote en masse and represent their interests, not yours.
  • There are 44 million eligible voters in your generation so know that your vote can make a difference.
  • Your generation is the most diverse. More than 70 percent of baby boomers are white while only 50 percent of Millenials are white.
  • While you may not own a house, be married, have children or have a job now, in a few years you will and what you vote on now will affect you in the future. And even though Social Security is long in the future, it will eventually come.
  • You can affect issues that affect you today such as foreign policy and environmental issues.
  • Many have sacrificed in the past for your right to vote including Civil Rights leaders and members of the military.
