Ivanka Trump and her husband openly admitted to not registering to vote for the election. I think one of the most important things for American citizens to remember regardless of what side they are on is how important it is for them to vote. Every American citizen is given that right when they turn eighteen and so many take advantage of it and do not vote. Ivanka Trump who is a strong representative for her father is not sending a good message to people about the importance of voting. She isn't helping spread voting importance.

I am not a fan of Trump. I have disagreed with him running from the beginning of the election. However, I am a strong believer in people getting to spread their opinions and thats why I truly think getting out and voting is extremely important whether you are a democrat or a republican. This country is a democracy and we get a say in who represents us and what propositions get passed. Voting is super important. Ivanka Trump almost disregarded it like her vote didn't matter anyway and every vote really does count.

I think that their is something really sacred about the right we have to vote. I think that the media spreading Ivanka not voting almost makes people feel like voting isn't a big deal or a joke. This election has already been so controversial and because of that i think that people need to acknowledge how important getting their voice heard in this election is. I just think each person needs to be reminded of this and reminded of the importance their vote has.

I honestly do not understand how something like this can happen. Especially with how much citizens are reminded to vote. She spent all her time campaigning but all that doesn't create a powerful image anymore if she wont do the most important thing and that's voting. When I first heard about this, I was in disbelief. It's kind of funny as well.

Hey Paige! I think it's really crazy that she would openly admit to planning not to vote, ESPECIALLY since her father is a presidential candidate. While I do agree that voting is extremely important for people to get their voices heard, I do not believe that it is a big deal if someone chooses not to vote. For example, I would very much prefer that Ivanka doesn't vote instead of voting for her father Donald Trump. Some people would rather not cast in a vote, because they feel that no presidential candidate has anything to offer to them, and I don't really see anything wrong with that. I believe that there are much worse things people do in this country than just "not voting". While I do believe voting is super important, there will never be an election where every single American citizen casts in their votes. Instead of being angry at people who would prefer not to participate, I think it would be more useful to use that energy to convince people who want to vote but are unsure of who to vote for.

It is important to vote in every election because people are not only voting for the next president but also for new propositions if whether they should pass or not. Ivanka Trump should vote because its what a citizen should do. There are people in this country that want to vote but can't for many reasons. It is important that if someone has the opportunity of voting they should in order to speak for other people that can't.
