Contemporay politics are essential for one to be aware of. Having the
knowledge of canidate's perspectives on certain issues is key to making a
decision on your vote. Whether an individual is a student or not, it is their priority
to acknowledge the opinions one is having on a certain topic and whether they
are for or against an act. Not only having an opinion, but what actions they will
take forth in either contributing or preventing a task.
Students, a tremendous number throughout the country, have the ability
to speak and be heard and without a doubt should exercise that right. More now
than ever, it is being stressed upon all young voters, not only students, to make a
difference and add to the poll because their votes in fact counts. All the younger
voters can make a change, but many take the opportunity for granted. They as
well live in this country and have rights to believe in what ever they choose. So
why not elect a person who shares your beliefs and is determined to make the
change for what they desire.
A majority of students that do not participate in the voting polls are those
which do not have an opinion due to their lack of knowledge. It is not enough to
encourage a student or any young voter to cast a vote if they don't know what it
is they're supporting. Being that they're politically ignorant, they find no
motivation to vote. Many may be in a state of confusion with the side canidates
stands on, because the burdons they face with everyday life. But they don't
realize those burdons can be lifted if they support the right people in the
government that share the same opinion on a topic such as taxes.
With the great deal of peoples belief that students should vote, then it
should also be agreed upon to have courses educating students on
contemporary politics. Universities should be responsible for preparing their
students for political issues....
