I recall the get out the vote campaigns of the past decade, of my early adulthood: “Vote or Die” and the like. These were campaigns backed by celebrities, athletes and people we looked up to. They even took care to not tell use who to vote, “it doesn’t matter who you vote for” they would say. They just said vote. It always seemed a great idea, yeah, encourage people to make their voices heard, but in 2016, it seems a more dangerous effort to encourage people to participate, for the sake of participating.
