Let's Talk About Voting: Maria Daou & Future Voter, Ava LaBorde
Will you be voting by mail or in-person, if so why?
MD - "I am voting in person this year because I can."
Why do you VOTE?
MD - "I vote because I want my voice heard and it is my civic duty. If you don't vote I don't think you should have the right to complain. It doesn't always go your way but at least you put your voice out there."
Why is it important for others to know to VOTE?
MD & AD - "What would you say to someone that says, 'My vote doesn’t count?' If everyone actually voted we would have true representation. Everyone should vote!"
How are you letting others know about voting, voter registration, and more?
MD & AD - "One way is by doing this campaign."
How do you think you can use your voice to make a difference in society?
MD - "By advocating for candidates and issues that I believe strongly in."
Do you believe the youth can make a difference when it comes to voting?
MD - "Yes, I can't wait until my 3 daughters can vote. I believe their generation will bring about the biggest social changes in the history of this country because they truly accept one another."
What causes are you the most passionate about when it comes to voting?
MD & AD - "Social justice and climate justice."
