This could be a wide variety of positions but usually we vote for someone who we think is going to work for issues we find important. People who think like us. This way our opinion and view point is represented in the government. They’ll represent ideas and pass laws that we agree with. Their ideas can help solve the issues that we feel are important and they can pass laws in our cities, states and in our country.
