What do you say to people who say their vote does not matter?
When people tell me their vote does not matter, I tell them that every vote counts and that they deserve to be heard. I also tell them that when they vote they have just that much more influence in their government than they had the day before. I let them know that they matter and that when they vote; the outcome of the election can be affected even in the slightest manner.
What's the role for youth in ensuring easier access to the ballot box?
The role of youth to ensure easier access to the ballot box is to be aware of the ballot box locations and the closest locations accessible to them. Youth also need to make sure they know what the ballot questions mean and how they will affect their community based on their answers. This will allow less confusion and allow the youth to be able to effectively vote on the ballot questions.
