Election 2020

Why Vote?

"The vote is precious. It is the most powerful non-violent tool we have in a democratic society and we must use it."

The Late John Lewis

Civil Rights Leader and former US Representative from Georgia's 5th district

 

"Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting."

Franklin Delano Roosevelt
32nd President of the United States

There's no such thing as not voting

Eric Liu a former political speech writer who held positions in both the Clinton and Obama administrations and current CEO of Citizen University, discusses bringing joy and pride to voting and argues that anyone who is eligible should vote. 

Did you know?

Did you know that in 2016, the most recent presidential election, between 42 - 44% of eligible voters did not cast a ballot? That's nearly 100 million eligible voters who sat out the election. 60.5 million people voted for Hillary Clinton; 60.0 million people voted for Donald Trump; and 6.2 million people voted someone else. Many people think their vote doesn't matter but imagine if all 100 million people who didn't vote had participated! 

 

If "Did Not Vote" was a candidate, they would have won both the popular vote and the Electoral College in a landslide.
