The right to vote is one of the fundamental principles in our founding fathers, and generations of Americans thereafter, fought to establish and maintain as the cornerstone of our democracy. Far too often we, as Americans, take this right for granted. Voting is more then saying yes or no on an issue. It is more than putting “our woman” in office. Voting is the right to be informed, to be educated, and to be involved. The question posted, however, is why is this (voting) important? For this writer, the reason voting is important has a three part answer.
