Where is the “Rock the Vote”
We should all vote. It is one of the most incredible gifts as citizens of the United States. We get to cast our own vote for the candidates or our choice. One vote is powerful. I believe that everyone should have the day off to vote or they should change voting to Saturdays like other countries. You should be able to fill out all your voting information when you get your license even though there is a few years delay on voting from being able to drive but at least registering to vote will take place.
In 1990, MTV launched Rock the Vote. It created awareness among the youth to get out there to register to vote and then actually vote. Where is this generation’s Rock the Vote? Why doesn’t Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube create their own Rock the Vote initiative? People are starting to have a reaction to over-consumption of social media these days but they do have the eyeballs. Being socially responsible by creating a new type of Rock the Vote campaign would be in everyone’s interest.
If anyone out there is reading this who has the potential to get everyone out to the voting booth, please do. These days more than any other, we need to embrace our democracy and not take it for granted.
