The weather will be bad. I will get a ride, leave my house, and vote anyway.
My candidate disappointed me in an “October surprise.” I may change my vote but I will go to the polls and vote anyway.
The lines are too long at the polls. I will wear my comfortable shoes and vote anyway.
The election judges at the polls annoy me. I don’t like (fill in the blank). I will go and vote anyway.
I can’t read. Since an election judge can, someone will help me. I will study the ballot ahead of time, get the help I need, and vote.

My state is (fill in the blank-blue, purple, red). I don’t belong here. Still, I will do my civic duty and vote.
I don’t understand the voting machines. Since there are many volunteers who will help me, I will lay aside my pride, take a risk, and let them help me. Then I will cast my ballot in private. I will vote.
I can never get the ballot in the machine the right way. I will try again, ask for help, and I will be an American who votes.
My polling place is at a church. I am not religious and I don’t want to go to a church. I will lay aside my fear, go in the one door where it says “Polling Place,” walk in, and vote.
It’s my (fill in the blank)’s birthday on Tuesday, I will vote anytime between 6am and 7pm and cast my ballot. I will vote.
I am an American. Civics and Citizenship matter. Therefore, I will vote. My fellow Americans are depending on me.
That’s Common Sense Civics and Citizenship at work!
