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!
