When you cast your ballot in the U.S., you’re exercising your right as a citizen to assert your opinion for who you want to represent you and your country. Voting is seen as the ultimate equalizer, but that isn’t always the case. There are so many people living across the U.S. and its territories who can’t vote for the leaders who run the country. Many are too young to vote and some are deemed not mentally capable. Others are legal permanent residents living and working in the U.S. but still don’t have a vote. If you’re a U.S. citizen and live in a U.S. territory like Guam or Puerto Rico, you can serve in the military, but you cannot vote for president. These people would give anything to have a say. But you have the power to make a difference – your vote is bigger than you.

Too often, we hear people say, “My vote doesn’t matter” or “It’s a waste of my time to vote.” Ignore those voices – it does matter. It’s easy to become disheartened with the voting system when things don’t swing your way, but don’t give up. Many election outcomes are razor-thin, and your ballot can be the ultimate decider for who makes the laws that impact your life and your community.

As a nation battles a crippling pandemic and protests racial inequality, there is no better time to vote for the changes you want to see. Reebok is giving a voice to those who truly understand the value of your vote, because most of them can’t vote themselves. If you’re already planning to vote, this is a friendly reminder that there are people who are grateful to you for doing what they can’t. But, if you aren’t convinced that your vote matters, perhaps this group can shed some light on how meaningful it is.

Check out the video above and remember to vote on Tuesday, November 3rd or earlier is your state allows.
