Voting is our most sacred democratic responsibility as American citizens because voting is the very foundation of our democracy. Voting is also a precious right, for which African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, women and others struggled for decades to win. As an Asian American, I know how very precious our right to vote is. Our vote is our voice, but it is only heard when we exercise our right to vote.
