Why is this issue important? Why is voting important? We can likely all answer this similarly. We can each do so without reading The Federalist Papers, or a single book by Alexis de Tocqueville. Having a say, an opinion, having our thoughts taken into account for how our community, our state, our country operates is an integral part of this country.
