Expand voting in Washington

The mere obligation of voting is clearly not enough to motivate people to vote and use one of the most major causes of our ancestors’ fights. Automatically registering people when getting their license, and causing more accessibility, might be enough to “tip the scale.”

While it has become more and more apparent that we as a developing generation prefer power while giving the least effort possible, this is a very fitting change for encouragement. I believe at the very least this is a step in the right direction. The more people involved in making decisions for the country of which they reside would definitely result in a more adaptable and more satisfactory nation.
