“If you don’t vote nobody hears your voice,“ said Matt Barrett.
Matt Barrett encouraged people passing by Sandalwood & Sage at the Norman Art Walk to register to vote. The volunteers at the Bernie Sanders table registered many first-time voters. According to Barrett this grassroots movement is taking the government out of the hands of the corporations putting it into the hands of the American people.
Every vote counts! Voting is an American right; however, if you aren’t registered, you can’t vote. According to Barrett, without your vote, elections aren’t changed.
