Don't Surrender Your Voice Vote! Button Wear this button to remind family and friends to vote. Voting is your chance to have your voice heard. It's your official choice that you make in an election. When we choose not to vote we surrender that right and surrender our voice to someone else. All of our voices matter. Voting is the most fundamental and sacred right of our democracy. This was inspired by President Obama's American Idol Finale message on April 7, 2016 to encourage people to vote.
