As people grow older, more freedoms are given to them. Something that they should be doing is voting but should a person vote?

Everyone should consider voting. 

In today’s world, people are heard more than ever. Even if people do not physically speak, they can still be heard through voting. Voting allows people to move for a change; it is what keeps the great democracy of the United States alive. According to, “It took many years of marching, protesting, and fighting for all of us to have the right to vote. Use your right. Exert your power.” This only improves on the matter that voting was never given to everyone. This opportunity is the best opportunity one could receive as it was fought for people to have. If you want a voice in any election, then vote because every vote matters. 

Other arguments include people being too biased to vote. Although there may be biases, it is the right of the person to vote. This is their opportunity to make themselves heard and to vote for change. Taking away that right is only making the tensions worse and therefore should make everyone consider a vote.

The only thing that needs to change is the people. People need to see that they have a right to speak, even if it is not physically. Voting is allowed to anyone 18 or older, so they have all the right to vote for a leader. 

Voting is given, so people need to utilize it. Change can only happen when people stand together to allow it.
