I Care About Voter Registration

Anya Souza-Ponce, Journalist

2/13– care about voter registration. In the 2016 presidential election, only 55.7% of all voters participated. Voting is important because it gives people the chance to speak their mind and contribute to the world around them. Many people don’t vote because they don’t believe their voices will make a difference, but if you have millions of people believing this, the elections are impacted dramatically, and according to New York Times Upfront Magazine, 2/3 of all eligible voters don’t end up voting. Registering can be as easy as scanning a code, you simply need to get your voice heard and vote for what you believe in.
