Voting Is Multiplicative
Check mark

September 1, 2020 — Massnonprofit News urges readers to vote in this year's Presidential election, and over the next nine weeks ask family members, friends, acquaintances, colleagues, associates, and others to do the same.

Simply put, a representative democracy like ours depends on eligible voters actually voting.

Some people, whatever their political orientation, are tempted to say, "My vote won't make a difference, so why bother?" The problem is when that sentiment is multiplied by hundreds of thousands—perhaps millions—of people across the entire country, not voting can make a difference.

What if, instead, those same people were to say, "My vote will make a difference"?

While it's hard to ever know what the exact impact those additional votes would be on specific races, of one thing we can be sure: The result will more fully reflect the will of the electorate.

A few votes here, a few votes there often make a difference. Voting not only adds up, it becomes multiplicative.
