That said, it’s the European elections today and whilst they may not seem the most relevant elections to our every day lives and the state of politics at the moment maybe makes people even less inclined to vote, but if you have a vote then today is the day to use it. People are disillusioned with the mainstream parties, but unless lots of people go out and vote that means there is a much higher chance of far right parties getting into power.
So go and vote if you can – and try and cast your vote by voting for something rather than against.
Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.John Quincy Adams
To make democracy work, we must be a notion of participants, not simply observers. One who does not vote has no right to complain.Louis L'Amour
