Whether you are pleased or disappointed about the current political atmosphere, you should vote so that the nation understands how the majority of the youth feels. After all, according to government statistics, roughly only 46 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds actually vote, meaning that community members who fall in this demographic tend to be underrepresented.
