During the most recent presidential election, many people did not vote for a variety of reasons.
The problem of not voting is that the Russians and maybe the Chinese are watching us. If there are enough people not voting, it sends a message to them that we really don’t care about it. We are giving our adversaries watching us the message that voting is not important to us.
Imagine what it would be like if we couldn’t vote.
My recommendation is that if you are eligible to vote, you get out and do so. If you don’t like the people on the ballot, do a write-in vote.
