Meet Our Raleigh Team: Mark

Where are you from, Mark?
High Point

Have you done canvassing before?Mark
Yes, during the 2008 General Election

Why do you think people should vote?
People should vote because it’s a right, not a privilege. Our country has designed a system where we get to choose who are our leaders.

So, why do you think people choose not to vote?
Some people tend to see the government as a system rather than feeling a part of the process. Issues that affect our lives – especially for young people – like a bad economy, student loans, can impact how people view the political process. I want to help change the perception that our government is a separate system but rather our government is the outcome of the values we – as voters – want to be reflected in the decisions they make.
