Letter: Your Vote

“The Vote.” So much meaning in these two words for the history of our nation. Your lone vote, so little, but the alternative, that of not voting, is nothing.

“The Vote.” So much meaning in these two words for the history of our nation. Your lone vote, so little, but the alternative, that of not voting, is nothing.   

Your single vote multiplied by the wealth of votes by like-minded voters is a huge something given today’s sharply divided electorate. Do you vote?


Some have said “It doesn’t matter; the outcome we get is the same, no matter.” Not so given today’s sharp divide. If you favor one direction but don’t vote, that amounts to a vote for the opposite choice. What the outcome means today, for me and you, and for millions others, is consequential. This election’s outcome takes us, our country, our compatriots, forward on the crucial issue: the form of government we have next, and likely in years beyond. The result might not be the same without you and me. In “the power of the ballot,” our vote is the engine of that power. Especially for this election, whichever party is victorious in Congress will greatly influence the direction the nation takes and the quality of the lives of its people well into the future. Make the difference for the difference you care about.

Ken Larner, Evergreen
