Why it is important to vote: “When you have lived in a third world country where people have little to no freedoms and you see the atrocities on the news of how men and women are persecuted, you recognize the value of having a voice. Many people across the world put their lives in danger in order to cast their ballot. Voting is a right that fellow citizens have given their lives to protect this freedom.”
