Why should Americans exercise their right to vote Why should we vote Is it really worth our time The answer is YES People say that one vote wont change the outcome but take a look at Florida Right now the election of our president is in the people of Floridas hands Your one vote is very important Many people take voting for granted You see By voting here in Oklahoma we are really choosing eight representatives to go to the electoral colleges in December Those same eight people are also the people from our beloved state that are in the House of Representatives In December they the representatives you chose will vote for a president Their votes are called electoral votes They are based on the popular votes When you go to the poles to vote for a president and the ballots are totaled up those are called the popular votes My personal opinion is that the popular votes should determine the winner Right now just because a candidate has more popular votes doesnt necessarily mean that they have more electoral votes The number of electoral votes each state has is determined by that states population The larger the population the more electoral votes In the election that is taking place right now Al Gore is winning in electoral votes but over half of the states voted for George Bush How is that possible you ask Because Gore took most of the larger populated states Now say you lived in California That state has 54 electoral votes What if only half the population of registered voters actually went to vote Lets say the majority of them voted for Bush but he only won by one vote That states electoral votes would be Bushs and in conclusion Bush would be president So think about this again does your vote really count Of course it does
