MAKING A DIFFERENCE AT A PERSONAL LEVEL BY VOTING
With elections around the corner, doubts about voting or not voting are not an unusual thing. If you think of making a difference and bringing about some good change for your country, you need to start at a personal level and one of the first steps is to vote.
The question of “Why Vote?” leads one to ponder on how choosing the correct leader makes all the difference in the world. Here are five reasons why you should vote:
FIVE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE
- As a legal citizen, voting is your number one RESPONSIBILITY.
- If you don’t vote, a false vote may be cast on your name.
- This is your small input in making the country a better place to live.
- If you don’t vote, you allow others to make the choice of a leader for you.
- Not voting won’t bring about any good. It will only lead to worse situations.
HOW ONE VOTE MATTERS?
If each person in the country thinks that voting will not bring about any good and refrains from casting their vote, then as a nation we collectively hand over our right to others. We let a few people choose for the majority of us. We hand over the power to those who might have vested interests when it comes to ruling the country.
A single vote given to the right deserving candidate makes a lot of difference. It is one vote less for the corrupt parties. It is a duty fulfilled as a citizen. And who knows at the end of the day the right party might just win by one vote?
Similar to how not voting can bring about negative consequences; a single vote is capable of bringing about positive change. Do not underestimate the power of even a single vote.
