A short message to our youths from the Election Commissioner's Office
1.THE YOUTH VOTE IS OFTEN UNDERESTIMATED
Yes, it is true; the trend analysts who tell party spin doctors where to target their advertising dollars and public relations effort traditionally over look the youth market. Why? Because the sad reality is that election year after election year the percentage of eligible youth who actually register and vote is very small when compared with other demographics.
This doesn’t mean the youth market isn’t a force, it just means that it isn’t a main motivator in the drafting of campaign platforms and pre-election advertising. So, like any self-respect rebellious young person the natural thing to do is go against the grain and do the unexpected. Keep them on their toes, shock them into the 21st century and get out and vote!
2.THE HOTTEST ISSUES ARE ALSO YOUTH ISSUES
The education funding, employment and job training programs, accessible health care, and reproductive rights are just a few of the current hot topics that directly impact the quality of your young life.
Think about the future and the world you will one day inherit and you can add environmental concerns, fossil fuel consumption, and the list just gets longer. Add any issues that are near and dear to your heart on a personal level and the list becomes a little overwhelming. If you don’t vote you effectively kiss off your ability to have any influence as to how these issues play out in your world. That’s just lame.
3.DEMOCRACY ONLY WORKS WHEN YOU WORK IT
Yeah, yeah, yeah, this one is an oldie, but hey let’s face it, it’s also a goody. A government by the people, for the people just can’t work without the people. This is a simple fact. Like a car without an engine, or a computer without a hard drive, a democracy without voters is just a shell.
While it is easy to think that one vote doesn’t make a difference the truth is that every vote counts. You have to remember that as an individual your vote may seem to be little more than a whisper but when your vote is combined with the votes of others who share your views it becomes a voice. The more like-minded voters there are the louder that voice grows. So get out there and make the youth vote to be heard.
4. DON’T VOTE, DON’T COMPLAIN
If you don’t vote you really have no right to complain about government decisions that you don’t like no matter how much they actually suck. If there is one thing that is really annoying to us actual voters it is the endless ramblings on the bad political policy of a current government spewing from the mouths of eligible voters who never bothered to cast a ballot.
If you don’t vote it is like saying you don’t care how your country is run, so if you don’t care where do you get the idea that you can complain when something happens that you don’t like? If you don’t vote you really have no right to complain about anything the government does.
If you’re like most young people you like complaining and have it down to a fine art. Want the right to complain when the powers that be make a truly heinous decision? Then you must exercise your right to vote.
5.VOTE BECAUSE YOU CAN
Voting is a tremendous gift. Young people just like you in other countries actually fight and even die for this right; a right that so many youth in democratic nations take for granted. You should vote because you can, if you don’t you may one day wake up in a country where you can’t. Enough said.
