Why Vote?

The importance of Voting:
The word “democracy” is Greek for “Government by the people.” The act of voting is at the heart of democracy. It is making a choice on the kind of government that you have.

Voting connects citizens with their political process. Voting helps choose our leaders. The simple act of marking a ballot paper tells our leaders what we think about decisions that affect our lives. Voting connects us to one another as citizens. By expressing our point of view, we help our democracy work. By agreeing or disagreeing with our leaders we show that the political system can accept differing points of view and can resolve them.

A democratic community can only survive if its citizens see participation in the political process as a duty and a responsibility. By Voting, each citizen participates in a process that might improve our country.

What Ireland needs is greater participation in the democratic process, especially by young people in the political process. We also need to persuade every citizen that taking part in the system is not a luxury – it is your duty as an Irish citizen.

Having outlined how important it is to vote, here are just some reasons
