How often do you hear someone say, "My vote doesn't matter" whether you are in the U.S. or another democracy elsewhere in the world? I hear this surprisingly regularly when I broach the subject of politics with people I know and people I don't and I'm a privileged white man.
This is why I found the essay "My Vote Doesn't Matter" published on InsideHigherEd.com by Paul Loeb, Alexander Astin and Parker J. Palmer to be especially thoughtful and helpful. It's not only full of ideas about how I can respond the next time I hear this, but it's a treasure trove of references and resources.
Check it out and pass it on.
