It Is Voter Apathy That Prevents People From Voting – YJ Draiman

It is voter apathy that prevents people from voting - YJ Draiman

It is known that many people distrusts politicians and the "system", and many people believe that their vote is worthless in the end. This leads to high levels of "voter apathy", especially in municipal and state elections.

We need to educate the people that their votes do count, that each vote helps them to exercise their constitutional right in a Democratic country.

I know many voters claim that the elections are controlled by special interests groups and the money people.

I feel very strongly that if the masses of people would rise up and vote, we could overcome the special interests groups and the money people. After all the peoples numbers are much greater than the special interests groups and the money people.

It is a government by the people for the people.

I plead with all voters please exercise your right and vote.

Thank you
