The voting process in America involves decisions made through democratic elections. Voting allows citizens to express their opinions on what type of governance. In modern democratic nations, citizens participate in government through representation. Representation is gained through a rightful choice based on the manifestos of each candidate seeking a mandate from the people. Citizens give a candidate a mandate through voting in an electoral process that is free and fair. In earlier history, only white men were allowed to vote and naturalized citizens who were born in the United States.
Women were forbidden to vote, and any man who was not white was without property. Voting is an important process because every citizen has a chance to vote in every year. They give up on a chance to choose leaders and representatives who will make a decision that is important to them. The decisions an elected government official makes will affect every aspect of our lives. Their power in making decisions can affect our lives in school, community, and in health care.
To make the country better, we must let the citizens tell the government what they need to do.
In any government that votes by the people, it is the role of citizens to ensure that the government fulfills its role through better policies that are by human rights. The United States is no exception to such a system that advocates for equity, freedom, and justice in civil engagements in governance. Against this backdrop economy, social change plays an important role in matters of governance.
Economics driven by the hunger for balanced change informs a major stake in choosing the rightful candidate. Such as argument enlightens the need for many citizens to participate in an electoral voting process, in many cases he or she prospects personal benefits that outweigh the expected cost imbalance. A citizen can only make thin is decisions based on campaign promises and manifestos of candidates in a competitive electoral process.
Social change is a critical driving force in the voting system. Citizens have a choice to abolish outdated rules through an electoral process. On this basis, any citizen through the voting process has the power to inform better policies. Advocating for good policies ensures a collective benefit that comes with a better option during voting. Judgments and powers drive the choice of citizens as guided based on who has better policies. The third reason for voting is guided by limited reason and facts. A citizen can vote for limited reasons and more by the strong feeling of attachment or sense of belonging to one candidate compared to another. A person who votes in limited facts is likely to express certain desires or preferences of a particular candidate without any accompanying reasons that they will cause the desired outcome. (Goldman, A.I.,2010)
In any election, voters hold a key to the future. Elections provide for a leveled ground into which everyone has an equal opportunity to speak out using the popular vote because every vote counts. It is only through every single vote that the result will be fair and complete. Driven by this fact, voters must vote to promote fairness motivated by self-satisfaction and interest. The reasons for voting lie in the fact that one party gets a chance and self-satisfaction in terms of “credit” or “discredit” for electing the best candidate to a specific seat or a position; this gives the best competitor a chance to lose. This gives fair results that are satisfying to the electorate, and a viable ground to identify valid reasons to vote for specific policies. To fulfill democratic responsibility, a voter must cast his ballot in any election to add to ethically important results that must be delivered agreeably. It is in this argument that the voter strives to fulfill the constitutional role and civic duty as registered in the laws and policies of the society. In the process of expressing his democratic right within a given democratic space. Every vote counts, especially for young voters as they strive to seek representation for inclusivity in every election. Besides inclusivity, youths are obliged to cast their votes with the motivation to be a part of the electoral process. In the process of voting, youths make critical decisions that govern the future. Every vote is a representation of a better future.
Globally, youths are growing up in a landscape young people need to vote at demands they see the world differently. They are becoming more innovative, connected, and determined to see a significant change in their communities. However, to make use of their potential, we must recognize the role of young people and their organizations in society and encourage them to take action across all essential areas that are crucial in development, including in policies, business, academic, and civil society. The business owned by youths are coming up each day, all in the bid to fight the challenges faced by youths due to a high rate of unemployment. The youth has proved to be the next business moguls in entrepreneurship. The government has set up innovation hubs, designing policies pro to startups to help in this struggle. Young people need to vote to evade unemployment and gain better job opportunities.
Education is about making the essential investment in human capital to increase the productive capacity of a nation. Quality education generates both immediate and long-term benefits to society. It gives the youth effective skills for employment, improves living standards and personal health, and promotes peace and stability. Young people have different perspectives and hold different ideas. Allowing them to voice their opinion on national issues, can open and move the political world forward. Youths should be allowed to actively engage in politics unless they lose interest when they grow up to take responsibility in society.
Change is easy and can take place instantly, what’s much harder is overcoming inertia and the resistance to change because humans are creatures of comfort and habit. Humans would rather keep doing things the old way, especially if it worked pretty well. The major problem is that the old ways will not work for us in the future. Change occurs in these stages, pre-contemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, and maintenance. It applies in that as much as human beings are unwilling to change, it’s voting that can bring change.
Being a leader is not about a title or being in charge, it’s about service. Youths should learn the basics of becoming servant leader who puts the needs of others first and helps individuals develop and perform as highly as possible. To become a good leader you have to put the team first because the best followers are always considered the best team players. Young people should learn how to make personal sacrifices for the good of the team. Team players are what keeps the team together; their peers and leaders count on them.
Voting is considered a civil responsibility whether driven by reason or emotions as guided by democratic principles and social justice. Whether or not we know voting is important, and despite what the candidates tell us, voting is what we must do to make life better in the United States.
