Work's exhausting as is, and it's worse when you don't have official time off to take care of your sick kids, your aging parents, or just yourself! If you don't vote, you can't complain about not getting those breaks that you straight up need.

2. The Patriarchy.

Sick of seeing old, bald, white dudes with no style running this joint? Well, not voting is the same as voting for MORE of those dudes!

3. Long political rants on social media.

What has more weight than a four-paragraph statement starting with, "I usually don't get political on here"? An actual vote!

4. Hearing Donald Trump's name everywhere you go.

If you think it's annoying now, just imagine how annoyed you'd be to hear "President Trump" once a day, every day, for four to eight years.

5. A do-nothing Congress.

The Republican majority in the House and Senate has prevented action. If you vote for candidates who work together, things can get done. If you don't, well, a do-nothing voter has earned a do-nothing Congress.

6. The dangerous lunacy of climate change denial.

Hillary Clinton thinks climate change is real and that we need to stop it as soon as possible. Donald Trump thinks global warming is an actual hoax created by the Chinese. Here's his tweet about it.

7. Health care.

8. Feeling Buried Under Those Student Loans.

Guess what? Hillary Clinton wants free tuition at in-state public colleges and universities for working families with incomes up to $125,000.

9. Not getting this awesome sticker.

No vote, no sticker. SORRY. THAT'S JUST HOW THE WORLD WORKS.

10. And — gah, I don't know — a bunch of other things like issues affecting immigrants, LGBT people, and racial justice.
