People might try to influence you on who to vote for. They might use numbers, insults, fear, fashion, pictures of puppies and kittens, or even answer a question. But none of that matters. It’s your vote. It’s your decision. No one can take that away from you and only you can use it. Take the power.

follow 2. People fought for it.
Rosa May Billinghurst got her adapted tricycle tipped over by police in 1910 protesting for the right to vote. Court cases were fought and won in the 1980s by disabled people living in institutions demanding their right to vote. They fought so you don’t have to.
