There are as many reasons to get out and vote today as there are citizens in these United States. For 26-year-old Elizabeth from New York City, it's all about civic duty. "As Americans, it is our responsibility to vote and make a choice," she says.
Kortnie, 22, in Big Lake, Arkansas, agrees: "I'm voting because I have no right to complain about the government if I don't."
For others, their vote is all about issues. For 20-year-old Kelly from Newark, Delaware, it's about choice. "I'm voting because I don't want Roe v. Wade to be overturned," she says.
Sarah from Norman, Oklahoma, is voting for the environment. "I voted to stop global warming," she says.
