Voting numbers have always been a cause for concern in the USA. The government is always trying to come up with new ways to encourage people to vote. Even a small percentage of eligible voters deciding to vote in the main battleground states could change the entire outcome of an election. In this essay, I will discuss why it’s important to vote.
A slight change in the voting numbers could affect the entire outcome of an election and the course of world politics. President Obama managed to win Virginia, Ohio, Florida, and Pennsylvania in the 2012 presidential election because of the youth vote. Statistics show if Mitt Romney won these states he would have become president and altered America forever. The capacity for more change is huge because only 50% of eligible youth voters (23 million) cast votes in 2012.
