Yes, I've voted in every election since I was 18 even the little local ones. Twice, I forgot to schedule the van service and walked from my house to the high school where they vote which is at least a 2 mile walk and going back it's up a hill. My old wheelchair didn't like that so much, but I wasn't going to miss an election just because I forgot. My mother said that she's only half kidding that I would walk to vote in a blizzard if I had to. I think the reason I take it so seriously is that about 50 years ago, I wouldn't have been able to vote for several reasons. Also, 150 years ago there would have been even more reasons. I'm black, I'm a woman, and I'm disabled. At one point, every single one of these identities would have kept me out of the voting booth. I think it would be disrespectful to the people who came before me and fought to change the law if I didn't honor them by doing my civic duty.

I believe in voting though I am not very politically inclined. It is one of our fundamental rights and even one vote could eventually make a difference between a good and bad leader. If everyone votes, results may change quite dramatically compared to the current 40-60% turnout in most countries.

you are right. every body should vote so that the winner is selected. It should not happen that some part of the society remains aloof from the voting process thinking that it will not improve the condition of their country.
