What are some voting slogans that encourage people to vote?

Asked by MaekoPoisoning (401points) May 23rd, 2012

I want to make a couple voting posters to encourage people to vote, but I don’t want it to be candidate specific. Does anyone have any ideas that could help me?

Slogans are a way of preaching to the choir, not a way of converting the opposition. If you want to encourage people to vote, then, you will need to have actual discussions with them and explain the virtues of voting and the vices of political apathy. But if you need something short and pithy, here are two great political quotes from the ancient Greek statesman Pericles:

“Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.”

“We do not say that a man who takes no interest in politics is a man who minds his own business; we say that he has no business here at all.”

If you don’t have time to research the issues, vote anyway – it’s your duty.

You might take a Mad Magazine approach with Montstrous Gerunds and mix art with the message:

Exercising your right to vote (with appropriate drawing).

If it really was no big matter, why would they spend so much money? It is a big deal. Pay attention or pay the price. VOTE!

I’m quoting Will Smith’s dad here: “If you don’t vote, you have to shut up”.

Heaven help all of us if slogans really do anything but pump up the people who would have voted for you anyway.

If you don’t vote, you shouldn’t be allowed to complain.
