Why is voting so important? - BORGEN
The citizens of the United States of America are fortunate enough to live in a democracy, a chosen system of government that gives each citizen a say about the laws and leaders they want to be in power. Clearly, that is a simplified definition of democracy, and the voting system is much more complicated than just a “majority rules” scenario; however, citizens do and must have a say. It is their job to take advantage of this right that many other countries do not have. Why is voting so important? It is important because it is a fundamental right.
