When I turned 18 years old, I was obviously excited about all the new things I can now experience – like going to the casino or legally consuming alcohol. But, one thing that I overlooked until now was the experience of going to vote in an election for the first time.
It wasn’t until a week before voting that I realized that I could go out there and vote. Yet, when voting time came around I chose not to. And, after brief conversations with friends of mine, I found out that the majority of them didn’t vote as well. Why is it that voting numbers are slowly declining and not attracting the 18-year-old first-time voters? There’s a different way in which people my age would vote and the proper way to vote.
