11: Register to Vote

This is the 11th in a series of (hopefully) 52 posts related to the book Every Monday Matters. I'd love it if some other people wanted to go through the book with me. Contact me if you're interested.

So, are you registered to vote?

Well, because it’s good. It gives you a say in what’s going on in the country.

So you plan on voting in the upcoming election?

So are you gonna vote?
I am

Why is it important for people to vote?
Because I love America and I care about this country. And I know the way I want things to happen, and I want to affect those.

You think your vote counts? It does.

Why is that?
Because I can convince other people to vote my way. Sure one vote doesn’t count but ten votes might.

You’re gonna vote?

You think your vote is going to make a difference?

Why is that? Given that each of us only gets one vote, I think that each of our votes adds up. Kinda like eating, you know, each calorie counts.

I registered to vote when I got my driver’s license. I just checked the little box. And yesterday I got my early voter ballot in the mail.

Alright so I’ll just go through here and make a couple decisions.

Alright. That’s that.
Totally painless.

So are you registered to vote?

Do you plan on voting in an upcoming election?

Don’t you wanna make sure your voice is heard?

So register to vote today, and once in a while hand out a couple 20’s to make sure your guy gets into office.

Just kidding!
