Are we ethically obligated to vote?

Miranda Bartosz

This week our panelists Prof. Scott LaBarge and former Mayor of the city of Santa Clara Judy Nadler discuss the ethics of voting.

We talk about a range of topics, including:

Is it more important to vote even if you don't know much about the candidates, or to vote in an educated and informed way?

Why is the argument the voting is picking between the lesser of two evils invalid? (Hint: there are lots of reasons)


And Former Mayor Judy Nadler shares a personal story about the importance on voting in local elections.


So make you voice heard this election season and VOTE!
