Voting in a local, national or even in universities election is an exciting opportunity provided by democratic nations to their citizens. But some of us don't value that option when we fail to exercise our right to vote. Perhaps living in a third world nation where voting rights do not exist might change our minds.

There are many good reasons to vote, including the following:

1. Casting a vote allows an individual to express a choice among candidates who wish to become student leaders. It's up to each voter to locate available information about each candidate and to make an informed decision about how to vote. Failing to register a vote is tantamount to saying you don't care.Most have opinions about the way things should go, and they should use the voting process to express their preferences.

2. Voting provides a medium for students to support the democratic structure of their universities. Registering to vote means that you believe in the democratic process and will participate in it to represent your right to freedom of speech.

3. Showing up at the poll on voting day sets a good example to others, preferably juniors. Remember, they observe all that you do and will learn from your example, right or wrong as it may be. Civic awareness is an important part of their training and one of the early steps on the road to maturity.

4. Finally, taking time to vote reflects pride in the university that you're currently attending. Never surrender your right to speak your mind via the vote on election day.
Vote smart, choose candidates that could be bringing positive changes to our campus at the same time aid us is any way possible.
