It takes, like, 10 minutes MAX
It’s almost time to vote. Voting takes very little time, it’s super invigorating (you kinda feel like Leslie Knope), and it’s IMPORTANT...but a lot of people say that they “don’t have time” to do it. When you get to the polling station and get your ballot, it literally takes a few moments for you to finish up. Obviously you should pay attention and do your research beforehand, but that’s not hard at all thanks to websites like isidewith.com.
To prove to you just how quick and easy voting is, here are some things that take LESS time than voting.
Watching an episode of The Office

Granted there is no limit to how long you can pet a fluffy doggo…and who knows, maybe there will be one at the polling station! Gif source
Waking your roommate up
Ballots don’t need a loud alarm to go off every 5 minutes for an hour. Gif source
