Let’s take a second to think about why we vote. We vote because we want to have some amount of voice in the world. This is something we are entitled to, considering we live in a representative democracy. 

WHY DO WE VOTE?

  • To take control over our lives
  • To make a positive change
  • Be part of something bigger than ourselves
  • Protect our society from falling into despotism

Voting keeps us included in the decision making process which shapes the path for our city, state, nation and even the entire world.

GOOD NEWS FOR YOUR VOTE

  • Voting is the most empowering thing you can do in civic life
  • Voting is the one time we are truly equal; regardless of income, popularity or influence
  • You control the fate of the country and even the world

BUT THERE’S A CATCH

Voting only takes place every 730 days for Americans, and that’s only if you even show up for midterm elections. Further there are several obstacles threatening our access to equal influence while voting.

BAD NEWS FOR YOUR VOTE

Although your vote is incredibly powerful when used, it is still under threat from all sides. There are people working hard right now to reduce your political influence through some of these shameful practices:

  • Voter suppression
  • Gerrymandering
  • Dark money influence
  • poor range of choices and the “wasted vote” dilemma

In the US, Voter suppression takes many forms, but most are racist, such as North Carolina’s voter ID law which was found to target African Americans “with almost surgical precision.”  

We also have the plague of partisan and racial Gerrymandering, where legislators choose their voters and not the other way around.  Luckily this can be changed

With disastrous court rulings and woefully inadequate anti-corruption measures, we have an environment in Washington where bribery is legal, and there is no limit on how much dark money can be spent influencing elections.

Voting is powerful but is still too infrequent. You can still feel pressured into voting for the “lesser of two evils” because you are concerned that you will “waste your vote” if you vote your conscience. How did we get here? 

When you factor in dark money influence, partisan gerrymandering, the shameful practices of racist voter suppression and compromised decisions at the ballot booth, it leaves one wanting for a more effective means for citizens to stay involved in the decision making process. This is where GloPoll comes into play.
