3 Reasons Why Voting Is Important

by Mari on September 21, 2016

in Our Causes


With the general election coming up this fall, I thought I would provide some insight into why voting is important as college students. I am not here to tell you who to vote for, just make sure you vote this fall!

  1. Voting is a privilege.

Most Americans do not consider that some people can’t vote, like people who are underage or undocumented. Not to mention that outside of the U.S., some women in third world countries are still fighting for their right to vote. Vote for those who are not able to.

  1. Make your voice heard!

Voting allows you as a citizen to make the major decisions in our country. Don’t like something you see in our government? Vote to make a difference!

  1. Break stereotypes against young people.

Some older people tend to see young people and millennials as “lazy.” Prove them wrong and go vote! As a young person, this is our country, we need to take ownership of it!

I hope that after reading this post of mine, this will encourage you to consider the importance of voting. As a college student at Fontbonne University, I feel that it is our responsibility to make our voices heard this fall. Vote for someone who will represent your values and concerns the best. Here is a link to a website where you can get registered to vote, to check if you are officially registered, and to get an absentee ballot.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”-Martin Luther King Jr.

Take care,



Hey Griffins! As we all know yesterday was election day. It was my first time being able to vote and I took my opportunity. I feel that it is important for young people like us to vote. It may or may not affect us now but in the future it will. And, most likely it will affect our future children. This election was so close, I got worried that the candidate I voted for was not going to win. I also thought it would of been tied. Overall I was pleased with the election and knowing that I took a stand on who I want to run this country made me feel good. I believe it is important for everyone to vote. People back then fought for the right to vote and now people do not understand why voting is so important. It is very important, every vote counts. So I’ll leave you with this, be educated on the candidates and register to vote. We have the privilege to vote, why not use it.


Hey I just wanted to remind everyone that the mid-term elections take place next Tuesday, November 2, 2010. No matter what political party you may be a member of, it is important that you exercise your right to vote. My advice is to take some time out and study those things that are important to you in this election and then make your voice heard by casting your votes. See you at the polls!
