Why is it important to vote?
Asked at Kids Voting Rock the Vote concert at Liberty Hall, 644 Mass. on October 26, 2006
“It’s important to vote for your feelings on the issues, and it’s important for parents to put someone in office who’s going to do what’s best for their kids.”
“Because you need to speak your own voice. If you don’t, you’re giving up your rights. You can’t take them for granted.”
“It’s important because we have the right to, and sometimes we don’t want to vote for who everyone else wants to vote for.”
“Because we have to be able to vote for who represents us and the decisions they’re going to make.”
