“…the assertion of the natural right of all to the ballot for how can ‘the consent of the governed’ be given if the right to vote be denied?” -Susan B. Anthony #VotingMatters #2018Midterms
Americans are united in support of voting as a foundation of American Democracy. Our country has been shaped by founding fathers, thought leaders and legislators of all political stripes who believe in the power of the ballot and self-governance. At OneV we share the powerful sentiments expressed by American leaders on the importance of voting. America’s history on voting reminds us that this fundamental right is not a liberal value or a conservative value. From property-owning founding fathers, to all males, to former slaves, to women, to every other major group that migrated to America, we have recognized that voting matters to every single American and belongs to no political party.
