Voting is a fundamental process in a democratic system. It is a chance for the citizens to have a say in the people who represent them or an issue that impacts them.
First, an eligible citizen registers to vote, studies the candidates and issues, looks up their polling location, then casts their ballot during the election. Informed voting and participating in elections is one of the responsibilities of citizens of the United States.
