Does Your VOTE matter ?
Ok folk, another election coming. Sooner than all expected, never the less, important duty calls.
A friend of mine, today informed me that she will not be voting. I asked why, and her reply was -"My vote doesn't matter. It's only one vote. And I am not sure if I know who to vote for".
Being completely honest, I felt completely speechless at the time. As a friend, I didn't want to upset her, but it appears we have very opposite points of view. It even made me angry, how such an intelligent women could have such a stupid excuse.
Single vote matter! Every vote matters. People constantly complain about how they want to be heard, they want to express their point of view and they want to the world to hear it. And he we are the nation, the Queen, the world and even little Prince George, ready to hear your point of view. Not just ready, asking you to express your point of view...and what do you do? Not voting?!
If you truly don't know who you want to vote for, OMG, just do some research on parties involved on election (preferably with their history at least 30 years back, or even 50, since Brexit is at stake), be curious about programs that each party offers and think which one in long term will represent your interests as a citizen best.
Don't waste your vote. Let the world know what you thinking.
In the end of the day, women were allowed to vote not so long ago. We fought our right to vote with passion, tears, sweat and numerous sacrifices. Did we do it so that few years dow n the line we could carelessly say - "I am not voting"?
