I've talked to many friends, both conservative and liberal, who are having trouble drumming up the enthusiasm necessary to bother to vote. They don't like the candidates. They don't feel like voting matters.
But here is why you should vote. Just think of the most ridiculous but politically aware person you know. Fine if it's me.
If you don't vote, that just makes my vote all the more important.
Do you really want to live in a state where the elected officials start pandering to the likes of me?
