Why voting matters?

Voting is a right that all U.S. citizens are born with. Anyone over the age of 18 who has a clean record is able to vote in local, state, and presidential elections. Voting is often taken for granted by a lot of people in the United States but it is an important part of running this country, citizens are allowed to vote for whoever they feel is right for office but recently voting turnout has been low. Many politicians are attempting to raise the voting turnout by encouraging people to get out and vote, especially younger people in the United States. People should take advantage of this right because it is one of the defining principles of America.
