Need a compelling reminder that you should exercise your right to vote? Let Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) tell you.
The civil rights organizer was a driving force behind voter registration efforts in the South in the early 1960s, a dangerous act at the time. In 1965, Lewis led a group of 600 nonviolent protesters across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama; state troopers responded by beating him in the head with a night stick.
Whatever your excuse for not voting is, odds are high it’s a bad one.
