I believe it is important because we are the future of this country. It is a right we have fought too long and too hard for.

It is important because our voice matters. Our ancestors fought hard for us to vote so we should use that right responsibly.

It is important because our ancestors died for our right to vote so by us not exercising that right it defeats the purpose of their struggle.

As a student, it is a common practice to vote. I think that it is important to exercise our voting rights if, and only if, the voter is well informed about the happenings in the country and not just voting as a result of peer pressure.

It’s important because only a few years ago African Americans were not allowed to vote. Now that we have people of color running for office trying to better our country, we need to ensure that they get elected by voting.
