I am a first-year college student. I have declared two majors, a minor, and a certificate. I am an honors student, working for my university, recently pledging with an academic fraternity, with four club meetings a week on top of classes, social events, and family commitments. I understand every reason why you would choose to abstain from voting in the May 2023 primary election, believe me, I deeply understand aggressively avoiding another commitment.
But voting is an act of self-care, not a commitment.
