2016 Municipal Elections – My View.
Voting is a way of letting “your voice” be heard which is a bit cliché. By voting, you have a chance to make a change, a change that might just become a revolution, but who is to say? Who is to say that the party you voted for, that made all those promises to you will pull through? Will they deliver on their promise? How long will it take for them to deliver? Talk is cheap.
There are no cooperation between each party. The DA has been campaigning on promises that they will deliver a positive change to the situations we live in, the ANC promised the same thing and so did the EFF etc. There are so many political parties to choose from, how do we choose? Who do we trust to let “our voices” be heard? When it comes to elections, you don’t know who to trust but you have to allow yourself to have faith that the party you vote for, will deliver on their promises.
Young people are the ones that the community should be supporting and encouraging to vote. They are young and might not feel as if they will see change because they are used to their environment and the governments continuous disappointment to try and implement the promises that have been made to them.
Voting is all about making your town/city a better place. Voting could further stop crime from happening, help young children not fall prey to drugs and abuse and provide education. Voting is a chance to change and help your community to be a safe environment for the next generation.
The point I am making is that it IS important to vote because even though the party doesn’t deliver, you get to go to bed with a piece of mind knowing you done the right thing by voting and letting YOUR voice be heard by marking that X.
