Why Vote

The author of following article gives a good reason why voting is so important

Elected Politicians Do Pay Close attention to who does and who doesn’t vote

Elected public representatives are fully aware of who votes as well as who does not vote. All voter demographics and election information is contained in public records. Armed with that insight, politicians then act accordingly. If your locale is heavily populated by non-voters, elected officials naturally tend to ignore residents’ special needs. Such aloofness in turn spawns more resentment and anger among community members that culminates in even lower voting rates. Thus, it is essential that all residents stay on the same page to ensure full hearing of their unique challenges and concerns.
