What do you say to those who say the system is rigged? That democracy is broken? That it is impossible to hold people to account? That elected officials don't respond to pressure? That the Supreme Court will fall back on partisan divides? Black folks vote at high rates. Young folks are voting more today then they have in the past.

This isn’t just a gotcha question — people need to have faith in the system! It is pretty easy to look at all of this and just give up.
