Don't Throw Away Your Vote

Your vote does matter.

The struggle continues worldwide for the right to vote in free and fair elections. Some journey far, wait in long lines under adverse conditions, even risk personal safety to cast their ballot. Disenfranchisement is not a distant reality.
Don’t Throw Away Your Vote.

Voting is at the core of democracy. Without it democracy collapses. Democracy derives from the Greek words demos, ‘a group of people belonging to a particular nation' and kratia, ‘rule or power’. Vote comes from the Latin word votum, 'a vow'. And franchise, or the right to vote, originates from the French noun franchise, meaning 'freedom, right or privilege’.

 “Freedom is the continuous action we all must take,
and each generation must do its part to create an even more fair,
more just society.” --John Lewis Across That Bridge
