Your vote doesn't matter, right?

This Election, your vote doesn't matter.

It's just 1 out of around 13 million votes. Who cares?

Firstly, your vote is worth $2.49. Twice.
$2.49 for the House of Reps (green sheet) and $2.49 for the Senate (white sheet).
So all up, around $5 OF YOUR MONEY - TAXPAYER MONEY - can go to whichever Party or Independent, that you wish.

That might not seem like much, but consider that 13 million people are going to vote on Saturday. That adds up to a lot of money, that could be used by Parties/Independents.

Secondly, if you don't vote, YOU CAN'T COMPLAIN.
You can't complain about higher taxes.
You can't complain about lower taxes.
You can't complain about us going to war, or not.
If you don't vote, you don't get a say, and you don't get to complain.

Thirdly, people have died for decades and centuries for the right to vote. You don't have to. You have that right. And that responsibility.

So if you still believe your vote doesn't matter, think again.
