Stopping Voter Apathy
In January of 2005, millions of Iraqi citizens gathered at polls to vote in the first free election in fifty years. Over time, democracies have been shaped and molded into thriving republics where the people’s voice is the controlling force behind the workings of the government. But as we study voter turnout in America, a disturbing trend is evident. America is suffocating in the pool of apathy and must make a change. If we want fair representation, if we care about our privileges, if we want our republic to continue to survive, voting-age citizens must exercise their right to vote.
