I prefer to keep my vote secret, but only because I really want you to think about it carefully.
Look at your vote as your savings account, or the Christmas meat hamper you pay for diligently every month.
If you stop paying, you are not going to get what you hope for, or you’ll get less than what you hoped for.
But if you keep up squirrelling away that little bit every month, then your family is going to have a splendid Christmas.
It’s long-term thinking.
You are part of an interview panel that gets to decide on who gets the job; because for many politicians, that is what it is - a job, with wonderful perks that you and I can only dream of, but that you and I pay for.
These are perks that they must work hard for, and if they didn’t work hard for it over the past five years, then don’t believe that they will over the next five years.
On Wednesday, you get to make that decision.
Then there are those of you that have been saying that you will not vote tomorrow, because “why should I bother?”
You should bother because you’ll be surprised how many people are thinking exactly what you’re thinking; they wish things could change.
Your vote is a match stick that you get to strike to help brighten the light at the end of the tunnel.
This is especially true for all you young people who plan to laze the day away as far away from the voting station as possible.
Lifting your behind and going to make your mark on Wednesday will help determine whatever your hopes and dreams are for the next five years.
And that is a powerful thing. By not voting, you are giving away that power.
