Voting is a Right and Responsibility

The Declaration of Independence says: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all people are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights. But Rights come with Responsibilities, so your Right to vote also means you are responsible for registering, educating yourself on the candidates and the issues, AND voting – in every election.
