  • It Is Voter Apathy That Prevents People From Voting – YJ Draiman 2 comments

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

    (click to enlarge)

    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

    YJ Draiman

  • Author’s reply » In educating people the importance of voting
    Some people stated that these are some of the reasons people do not vote; at least a dozen reasons for not voting: laziness, apathy, lack of education, disillusionment with the process, feelings of helplessness and a general disdain for the negativity of partisan politics.
    After educating the crowd, some came away from the discussion believing those are hurdles that can and should be overcome. “After listening,” many people stated, “it makes us realize voting is really very important.”

  • Author’s reply » The people of this State do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies which serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may retain control over the instruments they have created.
