We all need to vote to make sure our voice is heard
Our vote matters
This is the most important election of our lives, and we should all be proud inspired that Starbucks is giving us the platform to remind us that all of our voices matter in a unique way.
Increasing the number of people that vote in each election means better representation, more funding to our communities, and a better quality of life. Politicians listen to two things, money and votes. If we work together as a community and increase voter turnout, then our state and national legislators will listen to our needs.
If we don’t speak up, we’ll never be heard!
Let your voices be heard!
I believe if you want change, you have to be heard. You have to stand up and be counted. It starts by voting. Voting locally to national
Vote make your voice heard!
Get this man out of office. We need to vote to make our voices heard and create change!!
I'm ready to vote this election
Remind the Politicians that their power comes from us, the people.
I pre-registered to vote when I was seventeen years old while a senior in high school. My first voting experience was during the 2004 General Election, when John Kerry was running against incumbent president, George W. Bush. This was during my freshman year in college. My friends and I became very involved and attended several rallies with candidates, participated in various "Get Out the Vote" events and organized a few on-campus presentations to learn about the candidates, understand the various amendments and initiatives to be voted on. We even gathered enough donations from the community to rent a van to provide a shuttle for students to visit their voting precinct and return to campus. The actions my friends and I undertook, resulted in the highest participation percentage of college-aged electors, during a General Election, in the history of the area on which we resided.
Registering to Vote takes only a few minutes and finding your nearest polling place is just as easy. Please get out and vote, our democracy needs you.
It is important to vote to get those who do not need to be in power out. We need representatives, senates, judges who are there for us and the issues we value most whether it is gun laws, racial equally, immigration, school funding etc.
This is great! so useful.
Vote, Vote, Vote!
