“Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt
The opportunity to vote is one of the things that makes America’s government different from many others around the world. Living in a democratic society means that every citizen who has registered to vote has the chance to cast their vote for the candidates they feel will best represent them.
Unfortunately, many Americans do not utilize their right to vote. Perhaps they feel that they don’t know enough about the candidates/issues at hand or just aren’t sure where to go for accurate information.
The Indiana primary elections will take place on Tuesday, May 6, 2014. These elections are used to narrow the number of candidates within political parties before a regular election.
This year, make sure your voice is heard. Do some brief research regarding local candidates and take the time to vote on Tuesday.
