Vote (n. & v.):
1. a formal expression
of opinion or choice, either positive or negative, made by an individual or body of individuals.
2. the means by which
such expression is made, as a ballot, ticket, etc.
3. the right to such expression: to give women the vote.
4. the decision
reached by voting, as by a majority of ballots cast: The vote was for the resolution.
5. a collective expression of will
as inferred from a number of votes: the labor vote.
Rock your right to vote! While you still have the chance, cast your ballot and make your voice heard. You can’t be represented if you don’t exercise this right.
