Ask anyone who has decided not to vote in the upcoming elections why they have chosen to disengage and the answer usually boils down to the belief that our votes don’t matter. After the popular vote was won by Al Gore in the 2000 election, and George W. Bush was nonetheless appointed to the presidency, many came to see the democratic voting process as more symbolic than anything. The powerful, many have concluded, will determine the outcome of the election, based on two candidates that they find acceptable for us to select. If another should win instead, some strange technicalities will give things to whoever mostly closely reinforces the establishment.
