Does Voting Matter in the Presidential Election, At 10,000,000 to 1 Odds, Unfortunately It Does Not

In this blog post, I’ll seek to answer the question of “Does Voting Matter?” and will go into detail on why, statistically, it really does not. This is kind of a touchy subject, as literally every single person that I talk to about this basically says “well what if everyone thought like that?” The answer to that question is that the same ratios of voter turnout would still be about the same, even if 99% of people started to think like that, and that the same election results would still come up. And while I know it sounds grim, it is basically the truth, the simple fact is that voting simply….does…absolutely….nothing, other than waste an hour of your life that you can NEVER GET BACK, in truth, you win by using that one hour every four years and doing something productive, learning a skill, building your resume, working on your business, or even spending one more our with your family and kids, after all, life’s pretty short, it’s important that you make the most of every single hour of your life, more on the statistics of voting below.

The top states that increase your odds of voting mattering a little bit are swing states, such as:

Florida

Ohio

Michigan

PennsylvaniaDoes Voting Matter?

Texas (in 4 years)

Wisconsin

Arizona

Georgia

North Carolina

Even then, your odds of ever influencing even the results of a single state within an election, let alone an entire election, are about ten million to one, the odds are far worse if you re in the 40+ states that are not considered swing states.

Why The Statistics Say that Voting Does Not Matter, Does Voting Matter?

So, at ten million to one odds, you showing up to the polls and voting really does nothing at all. I will say however that….assuming the elections actually count every single ballot….which I am leaning towards this not being the case, if you can get a coalition of about 10 to 20,000 voters to show up and vote for your candidate, in your state, for president, than it definitely can make a slight difference in an election. Aside from this being a ridiculously impossible feat, it is still highly unlikely that this would ever cause any influence to take place in that state, let alone a whole election.

If you actually want to make a difference in politics, there is only one thing that does it, MONEY. That’s right, money and political capital are about the only things that sway an election, so if you really want to make a difference in politics some day, use that one hour that you would’ve spent voting, and use it to work on your business, and then from there use the money you generate from your business to influence politics, it’ll mean much much more than your vote.

Final Thoughts on Does Voting Matter, Why It Is Statistically Insignificant Unless You can Muster a Coalition of 10,000+ votes

So, as you can see, voting is pretty insignificant statistically (its about as likely as winning the lottery as your vote ever swaying an election…..please don’t tell me you’re also still doing that), so I would recommend actually focusing on your business with your time instead.
