Don’t Boo. Run. You may recognize the adaptation of the famous tagline from President Obama’s 2016 speech at the Democratic National Convention. If there is anything that we have learned from Penn’s efforts to increase voter turnout this fall, there is immense power in people turning out to make their opinions known. There’s another, even more impactful way to have your voice heard, and that is to get involved yourself.

Democracy is based on the notion that the people should govern themselves — that the people have a voice. When we don’t vote, we lose that voice. In doing so, we do ourselves, and our community a disservice. And this disservice will not be short-lived. The reverberations of the 2018 election will be felt far into the future. If we don’t vote, we won’t have a say in that future.
