The benefits of voting
As we all know, voting is a very effective way to make a decision. Voting, if used by the majority, then it becomes a tool to decide which decision will have priority. Voting is used for elections, for new laws, to elect a new candidate, to decide who will be your class representative at school... In short, voting is a powerful way to convince and make quick decisions taking into account the common opinion.
In 2021, we vote for many other situations and uses-cases. When two or more people have to agree to make a choice, then there must be a voting situation. If you are 3 partners, then you must be the majority to agree. Well the vote can now be applied to the solution you are working on.
As Bleacher Report explains in its video, the importance of voting is crucial in the development of any situation. The majority must be taken into account.
“"My voice matters." "My life matters." NBA players and the NBPA explain the importance of voting and what issues matter to them this election season.”
