Top Ten Reasons To Vote | Make Your Voice Matter
Make Your Voice Matter

If you're not yet old enough to vote, you can still affect the political scene. Here are some ideas and resources:

  • Take part in "mock" youth elections-- the results may not affect the actual election, but the bigwigs will notice them!

  • Write letters to politicians and sign petitions.

  • Get involved in local organizations that focus on lobbying, protesting, community service, and other activities that really do make a difference.

  • Find a forum to express your ideas, ask questions, and see how other people feel about issues.
