As the third and final Presidential debate concluded last night, the importance of getting out and voting never seemed more important than now. Voting is the foundation of our democracy. Franklin Delano Roosevelt once said, “Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves—and the only way they could do this is by not voting.”
The United States has seen a decline in voter turnout in each presidential election since 2000, according to the IDEA (International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance). This election it’s time to change the statistics. As lawyers, we have a duty to protect the laws established by the vote of the people. We have to be advocates for the rights that our democracy has provided, specifically the right to vote.
The attorneys at Chauvel & Glatt want to encourage everyone to get informed, then go out and vote this election day, November 8, 2016. YOU can help make sure everyone eligible has an opportunity to vote in this important election. How? Assure that your staff has time to vote. Encourage your clients to vote, your friends and your family. The more eligible voters who get out and vote, the stronger our democracy—so please, VOTE this election day and make sure your voice is heard.
