Civic Sacrament

The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible walls which imprison men because they are different from other men.

~ Lyndon B. Johnson




Lower voter participation is a silent threat to our democracy...It under-represents young people, the poor, the disabled, those with little education, minorities and you and me.

~ Nancy Neuman




The future of this republic is in the hands of the American voter.

~ Dwight D. Eisenhower




To make democracy work, we must be a notion of participants, not simply observers. One who does not vote has no right to complain.

~ Louis L'Amour




Voting is a civic sacrament.

~ Theodore Hesburgh


Until later...
