I disagree with this premise almost as much as the "all that matters is participating" idea. It ridiculous to say if you don't vote you can't be a critic of government. I'd be more apt to argue that if you only vote, you can't complain. Voting is extremely overrated. That being said, it's still important, and I wish more people would vote, based on research.


Pacman wrote:Congrats on registering... Now please, vote every year, even if it's only muicipal, city/town or state offices. It's just important to be part of the election process for local offices/issues as it is for Senator or President... maybe even more so, as those folks (mayors, city councellors, etc.), can have a more direct impact on your life than the bigwigs in DC can.


This I agree with. Many people literally don't know the name of the person who represents them at the city, county, or state level, let alone what they stand for. Voting for national offices is all well and good, but local and regional officials have more impact on your day-to-day life, and are generally more receptive to inquiries, complaints, etc.

:-b :-b Vote or DIE!!!!!!!!! :-b :-b :-b


Seriously, if you want to vote, vote. if you don't want to vote don't. The reason groups like MTV, P. Diddy, ect. are trying "to get out the vote," Is because they think that your demographic (young adults) will vote for the people they want elected.

When anyone tells you to vote simply voting's sake, they have ulterior motives. Saying otherwise is naive.

Glad to see your enthusiasm towards being able to vote GSOE! I wish more young Americans felt the way you do.
