“Voting is the foundation stone for political action.” – Martin Luther King Jr. #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.
“Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.” -Abraham Lincoln #VotingMatters#2018Midterms
“Nothing is more essential to the establishment of manners in a State than that all persons employed in places of power and trust be men of unexceptionable character.” – John Jay #VotingMatters #2018Midterms
