I do vote during polling time. But in my locality I see a lot of people who do not vote.I just got amazed and asked them the reason.They said that shockingly that who ever the politician may be no one is going to do good things for us. Then why should I vote.I try to convince them that it is our duty but they won't agree. Do you exercise your right to vote??? Happy mylotting

Hello, I have voted since I became of voting age. I remember the 70's and that was when I got really into politics even though I was not even 10. I am the one in my household who researches the issues and why either I agree or disagree.

If my vote counts,I will surely exercise my vote during polls,but altough the goverment encourage the citizens use their own right to vote,it's just a hypocritical political action and actually our votes do not make any sense.it's called democratic but actually it's really not here.

Hi there! That happens a lot where I used to live but not here in the province. I always exercise my right to vote even though there are times when I feel like how they do. That maybe it wouldn't really matter at all. But still, I give it a try. Because it is like a situation where you can't loose. And with my vote, who knows, maybe a miracle would happen.

I definitely vote and have been voting since I was 18. I have always felt that it is important to vote for who you think is gonna be best for our country. I guess somewhere in the back of my mind I am always thinking..."It might be that one vote that makes it go wrong if I didn't vote" LOL! and when I do vote and it doesn't go the way I wanted it to, I can at least say it wasn't because I didn't vote. God bless
