The emotion of the vote

25 September 2022, go and vote and keep in your heart the importance of the gesture

By Fabiola Graziosi

We’ve heard a lot of them over the last period. If about a year and a half ago we were all interested in virology, talking about it with a presumption beyond the threshold of due, today words like democracy, fascism, anti-fascism, rights, abortion and the inevitable TikTokTak implode from our mouths or rather from our fingers on the iPhone in a very often similarly improper.

It is not a question of being able or unable to express an opinion on an event in society which certainly involves us closely, but of doing so with full knowledge of the facts. And here, nothing new under the sun. 

For this reason it is not useful to dwell on what is right or wrong about the vote, each of us knows in his heart what is right to do, what to want and to expect for an improvement of their personal and social condition from next 26 September 2022. 

What is interesting to analyze is the emotion around the act of voting, which is absolutely not negligible. You know BeReal, social media in vogue in recent months? This is how it works: download the app, connect with your friends and once a day at the same time you will all receive a notification from the platform. Then just take a picture of what you are doing and your entire community will be updated on your everyday life. 

On September 25 everyone will be in the same situation, all at the same time as the polling stations, all together to decide the fate of their future, to give representation of their thoughts, their will and their value. Concept far from trivial. It took several weeks to say who to vote and who not to vote, but never focusing on how valuable this gesture is.

The new generations are often accused of bad information, of not knowing the great processes behind the administrative dynamics of our country. Both because of the lack of civic education in schools and because of different ways of learning, this is partly true, but in the case of these elections it is the young who are really active.

What emerged is how much social generation and the younger generation still actively participated to demonstrate their point of view. A generation that fights for its rights and for the rights of minorities, a generation that does not want to close itself but to open up more and more, that wants to have the opportunity to learn and have access to education in a simple and meritocratic way.

So after all this constructive path of ideological sharing, an attitude that will continue over time, even after the hype generated by the elections, what will be our feelings at the polls?

A sense of participation, of sharing, of celebration of our being a member of a society that we hope (with some justified doubt) can always proceed in the path of progression.
