The importance of voting 1

“The 55.7% VAP* turnout in 2016 puts the U.S. behind most of its peers in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), most of whose members are highly developed, democratic states. Looking at the most recent nationwide election in each OECD nation, the U.S. placed 26th out of 32 (current VAP estimates weren’t available for three countries).”

*“the estimated voting-age population, or VAP”

Just think: if everyone entitled to vote actually gave it some thought before going to the polling booth, and put the result of their considered opinions down on the voting forms … why, there could be a meaningful result !

Go on - you can say it. :)
