The Ignorant Have a Duty to NOT Vote

voting 2016-05-24 10.24.11Today is what some might consider a “minor” voting day in Georgia, in that it’s a local general election/primary poll. No one is voting for president, the US Senators and Representatives on the ballot are only battling other members of their own party, and most of the candidates for lower offices are unchallenged. But we still have a responsibility to fulfill today.

The notion that “voting is a right” has long been a matter of debate. What is not up for debate is that it is a civic duty. But our first and foremost civic duty is to be informed, aware, invested, contributing members of society.

I implore you: keep America’s integrity intact. Do not attempt to  fulfill your duty at the ballot box until you have first fulfilled those other important duties. If you have not done the research, it is instead your duty to stay away from the polls. We don’t need the ignorant, the half-awake and the barely involved deciding our future.
