nothing inevitable | on choosing to vote for the common good

There's nothing inevitable about elections.

Suppose a hundred thousand - or a million - registered voters across the US were too busy / frustrated / angry / discouraged / distracted / whatever to vote in the midterm elections...

And suppose people and parties who work for and defend the best interests of those non-voters were to lose seats to people and parties who work against and undermine the best interests of those non-voters...

And suppose each of those non-voters then said, "See, my candidate or ballot measure lost; my vote wouldn't have mattered anyway" — not knowing that a hundred thousand - or a million - other registered non-voters were saying the same thing...

There's nothing inevitable about elections, except the fact that the outcome of each and every election is determined by adding up the number of people who actually voted.

The only way to be sure that my vote doesn't matter is to not cast it.
