I was wildly against it,
but my vote didn’t count.
They went through with it anyway,
and I stupidly went along.
My heart was racing
and my sight was blurred.
I saw their lips moving.
Instructing me what to do.
But all I could hear was the pounding in my ears.

you’ve only ever been given one choice before, and now, you’re faced with this? so much to think about and not enough time to make the Decision. will it matter, in the end? does anything? i need someone to slap me. i need to feel something other than ambivalence, other than the tearing of my soul in opposite directions, refusing to be together. i need, i need —

Voting her name was quite impossible. He never think of doing that. Voting her was such an impossible task it almost made him sick. But he have to do it. It’s for her sake. No matter how hard he tries to deny that he still have feelings for her. He just can’t. And as he stares at her fragile state right now. He could feel that all of that is his fault.

Vote for good. Vote gives you constitutional power. Vote for freedom.

I wanted to vote for him in the school elections. I knew he wouldn’t know I didn’t but it stills pains me to tell him I did when it isn’t true. I could see the disappointment in his face. He was beaten in his own field, for one vote, one that could have been me.

i can’t vote at this age but when i get older i guess i will vote. i hate how everyone is judged by who they vote for though. everyone should be respected for their own vote. personally i dont like voting. i am horrible at making decisions because i always wonder what would happen if i chose something different. but at the same time i am thankful to have to right to vote, being a female.

Vote? Vote for what? I mean, sure, i gues you could voite about who’s going to be the next president & who’s going to dictate your entire future. But there’s other things to vote for. Voting for that one person inside your head that everyone else is against; voting for the outfit that you think looks best, not what anyone else thinks. But idk.

Declarations of independence, we secure something of ourselves symbolically. Paperless connections seal deals in near silence. Our majority manifesto hits the airwaves and we are not yet ready.

Elections of the president. They are very small things.. 1 vote but put it together .. millions of ppeople you have a whole contries decision.. idea.. plan… hope… Votes.

Do you remember when woman were still trying to get the right the vote?
Look at how far we have come since then.

Vote was the one thing all had to do yet many would not. For reasons of fear lothing or lack of motivation. More need to stand up and vote. The people feard not the government but the results of their own decisions.

I don’t want to vote when I turn eighteen because I’m very apathetic towards politics. I am failing my politics class which only increases my apathy. I don’t think sixteen year olds should be allowed to vote. That sounds dumb, because it is. It makes me angry one would even consider that a smart decision to make into policy
By Daiana URL on 09.30.2012
I said, “Sir, my vote is yours.” Why though? Well, because he’s the first honest politic I’ve met. He offers, promises, and gives; so far, keeping his word. That’s all I ask for as a president. Honesty and generosity. Us, middle class, need as much help as we can get.

Don’t forget to get out and vote. Or stay in and mail in your vote, early. Our country is headed to the bottom of the barrel if we don’t find a person who can help bring us back to something close to civilized. So VOTE!

I’m voting for my life. Like we say in PTA, those who show up get to vote! My vote is my say…and I have a lot to say !

I spread the curtain and stepped inside the small booth. Levers sat in front of me. Names on silver plates lay below the levers. I reached one and grabbed, the metal was warmer than my hands. I thought about the past year. Who deserved to win? Who deserved my vote? After all, my vote could tip the scale.

Ablity to express your love of country and independace. To be a part of the country and help to elect someone worthwhile. To be 21 and have the right to be a good citizen and help other people in the world Aa freedom to be a part of the system. To help your children see whose worthy. to be a servant of the country. an honor and duty as an american citizen. As generations before us have expressed their freedoms and rights , so should I and you!
By terri Coseo on 09.30.2012
to do or not to do. that is the question. Whether it is better to go along with a system of repeated failure or to break free and create your own movements and ideas, who is to say?

When I agreed to move to the United States to marry and live with my American husband, I never expected to feel political. I am Canadian and I never knew what that meant until now- an election approaches and because I will not surrender my citizenship to Canada and Great Britain, as long as I live in this country I will never be allowed to vote. But I feel impassioned- I am about to bring a child into this world, into this country… so for God’s sake- if you can… VOTE!

Vote for the things you want, not the things you need. Vote for what is easy, not what is right. Vote for who they tell you to vote for, not the best person for the job.

Voting is the most powerful form of expression. 1 Vote can say more about you than your blog.

“I vote for it,” Moody all but shouted.
“This is ludicrous!” Shoshanna stood up and walked around the table. “I’m one of the best duelers you have, and you bloody well know it! I should be right out on the front lines! I have nothing to lose!”
“Codswallop! You’ve got a lot more uses than that!”
By Lily URL on 09.30.2012
voting is incredibly important. Voting determines who runs our society and that determines how everything goes. Voting is one right we have that I think everyone should exercise their right to do. I haven’t voted yet but I cannot wait to finally be able to. It doesn’t matter what it’s for, it helps to get our voices heard and allows us to choose how we want things in the world to go.

its your right!!!! not many people have this privilege, so no matter what your color or party, participate. you can’t afford not to.

freedom of speech, governments and presidents, high school cheerleaders and convoys tredging in tanks down dust rocky sided roads and inlets. Vote ? vote for what? for whom?

When the curtain closed, she turned to face the screen. She was alone now. She had the power at her fingertips. She flexed her extremities and extended a hand towards the machine. As she swept the pads of her fingers across the smooth, flat surface, she felt the excitement bubbling up inside of her. She knew she was making a difference. Her vote could change the world.

voting is an annoying chore that the government makes us do so they call call themselves democratic, while one vote will not make a difference.

“Thanks for the vote of confidence,” she snarls at me. She impatiently rips the rope out of my hands and ties the knot with capable fingers. “Don’t let yourself forget that I’m the only reason why you’re still alive.”

I was sitting in class one day, and it was homecoming week. The announcements came on and our principle, with his booming voice, started calling out the homecoming court nominees. It was mostly all the popular people, but then he made a slight pause. Then the next thing I hear being said, is my name. I was shocked. I couldn’t believe it, but I knew I’d dread it. Everyone was so shocked. I was the outcast of the school, but now I was a nominee for homecoming court.

Voting is involuntry where I come from. Still, I think it is worth while.
Why shouldn’t I care about who leads me?
By Madeleine on 09.30.2012
learning about history makes me really grateful that i live in a country where voting is allowed
albeit, it is commonplace that people are still today denied their right to voice their political beliefs
i suppose it’s a work in progress
