My name is Christian Mitchell. I am a 3rd grade student in the Atlanta, GA Public School District. As a very enthusiastic student, I actually jumped at the opportunity to enter the student competition, WHY VOTE? WHY NOT? I enjoy poetry, thus, I selected to share my thoughts on this topic with a rendition of my original poem, which follows:
WHY VOTE? WHY NOT?
WHY should I want to vote when all of the candidates are corrupt?
They're simply money-hungry and,
They all just want a buck!
WHY should I vote when my vote doesn't count?
The popular candidate doesn't matter no matter the amount of votes he/she gets.
It doesn't make sense!
What's the point of the Electoral College?
It needs to be abolished!
