Video: Why You Should Vote Today

Black South Africans wait to cast their first votes in 1994.

The right to vote is something Americans frequently take for granted, and it can be hard to remember that we didn’t always have it.

But if you still think your vote doesn’t count, or that your voice is meaningless, check out this video from the first free South African elections in 1994. It is a stirring reminder of why waiting in even the longest poll line is worth your time.
