If there's one thing Americans have learned in the past couple of years - or should have - it's that voting is one of a responsible citizen's highest priorities - or should be.
Let us hope that no American qualified to vote ever shrugs off the responsibility, or the opportunity, thinking a lone vote won't matter.
Every vote matters in every election, whether the contest is local, state or national.
If you have an interest in any particular issue, wouldn't you feel more "entitled" to express your view on it if you have, at the very least, voted for or against the person who will eventually oversee it?
We put quote marks around "entitled" because, as Americans we are of course entitled to express an opinion, regardless of the depth of our commitment. But having voted shows without a doubt that we care about our system and how it settles questions of public concern.
