SHARE to help turn this around. Frankly, I’m embarrassed for my generation. Whether it’s apathy, conspiracy theories, or just laziness, we need this to change.

Tell any professor of government that your vote doesn’t matter and they’ll laugh.

Don’t like the candidates? Fine, just write one in. If everyone did that the next election would look wildly different because our generation would matter to those who wish to run our government.
