Importance of Voting

When I was a young voter, I am now in my 60’s, and heard people say, “My vote doesn’t really count,” and analyzing that statement repeatedly. I have gone back and forth in my thinking on the subject, “Does my vote count?” Well the conclusion I have come to is that everyone that can vote (and the percentage is really lacking in numbers as I look at the number of votes in each county across California), get registered to vote and vote each time there is a chance to vote.

We all have the tendency to wait until the last moment but think about how many times you are on the internet looking up other things like Facebook, Pinterest, and other fun things. Instead, take time, an hour, just to look up, read, and understand where the non-vote has our country headed.
