What it means to THINK THE VOTE

// The importance of civic discourse

Q: Should private companies have the right to withhold their products or services from groups with whom they disagree?

no

“One has freedom of speech so long as he or she does not impair other’s ability to hold and communicate their beliefs. By withholding services from customers, the business infringes on that person’s ability to hold their beliefs--which is discrimination, also made illegal by anti-discriminatory laws.”

Daniel from Georgia

yes

“Private companies who deny goods or services to customers are simply exercising their right to free-choice, no more, no less. We may disagree with their choice, we can even condemn them as immoral bigots, but that is not the same as believing they should have their freedom stripped away.”

Joshua from Wisconsin

Think the Vote helps you to understand controversial topics and current events. Thinking through your vote is more than showing up on Election Day and picking the person that you like the best—it’s showing an interest in the world and the issues that surround you every day.

Bridge the Divide

“Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.”

– President John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address, January 20, 1961
