Don't think that your vote is not important and cast it off lightly, thus letting the person who does vote affect the future of your family and you.
Here is an example of the power of one vote: In 1920, as a result of one vote in the state legislature, Tennessee became the 36th state to ratify the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. One vote did it.
Use the ballot box to "speak your mind" and register your feelings and convictions, knowing that you will have had a big part in guiding your country through some very serious and dangerous times.
Motivate yourself to cast that one vote. That can and will influence others. Friends and relatives will follow your commitment and cast their one vote, too.
One vote can make the difference. Today, your country is $16 trillion in debt, and Americans are struggling with foreclosures, high gasoline prices and rising medical costs. Those are just a few of many reasons to do your civic duty and cast that one vote.
The decision to vote is your responsibility. Do it and feel good about being an American. God bless America.
