Why Some Americans Don’t Vote

Why Some Americans Don’t Vote

Most American citizens who are over the age of 18 can exercise their right to vote during federal and state elections. However, not everyone exercises this right because they believe that their voice doesn’t matter when it comes to electoral results.

According to a survey, some adults decide that they have a lot of other things going on in their lives like school, multiple jobs, children, or personal matters. They feel that voting is simply an effort taken away from their priorities.

As per the younger adults, however, they don’t have sufficient knowledge about how the government works and how their vote matters. Some of them also have misconceptions about voting. Is it really an effective way to change society? Will it impact every citizen of America or just certain groups and individuals?

As for the older adults, some of their reasons for not voting include not liking the system and their choices of candidates. They believe that the ones who, on the stand, only promise change but end up lying to them and violate what’s in the human rights article.

Voting is always detrimental because it doesn’t only determine which candidate wins or loses. It also affects which policies elected officials execute. However, because of the lies and betrayals, many government officials have committed, can one really question the citizens for losing interest in voting?

Revitalizing America is a political action in America that calls out government officials who have neglected their duties and caused many citizens in the country to lose faith in their leaders.
