In countries like the US, voting is not only a right, it is a privilege. It is the responsibility of every eligible US citizen to go out and cast their vote when the election comes. However, it is disheartening to know that there are several people who do not exercise this right and privilege.

There are several reasons to vote and some of them are listed below:
- Every single vote counts. It may come as a surprise that even one vote can decide an outcome of an election. So, make sure that you go out and vote, so that your leader is chosen in a fair and democratic manner.
- Remember, presidents and governors are the ones who appoint judges to the US Supreme Court. These judges are appointed for life and make judgments that have an impact on the social direction of the country. The presidents and governors, on the other hand, are elected by the people. So, if you want to defend your social rights and want the country to move in the direction you think is right, you should go out and vote.
- The politicians who come to power are responsible for deciding the taxes people pay to cover costs of several programs like health care, infrastructure and other projects for the community and society. Anything that has an impact on your monies is your responsibility. So, cast your vote so that you have a say in any decision politicians make.
- The security of the nation is under threat. There are threats from terrorists as well as criminals. This security threat could have an impact on you and your loved ones. The politicians have a wide range of opinion on the threats faced by the nation, and if you vote, you will be able to elect a leader who is able to protect not just your life, but also your civil rights.
