Voting is a civic sacrament. 
Theodore Hesburgh

If American women would increase their voting turnout by ten percent,
I think we would see an end to all of the budget cuts in programs benefiting women and children.

Coretta Scott King

Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves
and the only way they could do this is by not voting.

Franklin D. Roosevelt


Every citizen of this country should be guaranteed
that their vote matters, that their vote is counted,
and that in the voting booth,
their vote has a much weight as that of any CEO,
any member of Congress, or any President.
Barbara Boxer
