5 reasons you should vote even if you think it doesn't matter

While voting is a serious civic duty for some people, it’s a hassle for others.

Here are a few reasons why you should vote regardless.

1. Your vote makes a difference, especially in local and state elections. There are plenty of cases where a small number of votes have decided elections.

2. There’s always one candidate who represents your interests. When you choose not to vote, others decide who gets to enforce laws as your representative.

3. States offer the ability to register your vote online and the process takes less than five minutes.

4. Every single aspect of daily life is affected by your government like the roads you drive on, the air you breathe, the water you drink and the food you eat. So choose wisely on who should make these decisions on your behalf.

5. Our forefathers fought for the right to vote. So, take advantage of it and use it to choose a candidate who represents you well.

Voting is an important civic right and this is your opportunity to make sure your voice is heard.
