WHAT WOULD YOU SAY? When Somebody Claims That Voting Just Isn’t Important

If history is any guide, nearly half of all voting-age Americans will fail to vote on election day, November 3, when the country picks its 46th president, a new Congress and scores of other officials for state and local governments.
