It is the end of October, which means election season is coming right around the corner for those individuals over 18 in the U.S. The first Tuesday after November 1st is the day of reckoning, the moment of truth. It is election day and let me tell you, this is definitely one you should sit out. Voting is not your civic duty or anything, so why bother?
I know you are thinking at least one of these, and believe me, you are not alone. There are many more valid
excuses reasons out there, but these are the best reasons not to vote this November.
1. I do not know anything about politics
It's just like when I didn't get my driver's license because I did not know how to drive. And just like how I never went to school. Why bother trying anything if I do not understand it?
2. I am only one person, my vote doesn't matter anyway
Nobody's vote matters. Heck, if nobody even turned up to the polls, someone would still win. It is completely out of my hands.
3. President Tiny Hands is doing a great job, IMO
Have you heard the man hiss? Absolute genius, that guy.
7. I don't want jury duty, so I just won't ever register
Jury duty is the worst thing that could happen to me, and I really cannot afford to risk that.
8. Voting is a right, not an obligation
This is a free country. If I do not want to vote, I don't have to.
9. I think voting is a waste of my time
Taking five whole minutes to fill in circles on a ballot? Definitely too much effort.
Okay, okay, the gig is up. Any of these excuses are total b.s., and there are plenty more where they came from. There is no reason not to vote. Voting is easy, registering is easy, requesting an absentee ballot is easy.
Sure, you might think the results of the election will not impact you, but reality is a far cry from that simple oversight. For many, the results of this election are a matter of self-preservation, identity, self, future, and existence. You owe it to yourself, to your friends and family, to the future generations to vote.
Elections are November 6th! Spread the word!
