If you would notice only a handful of people would greet Happy Election Day. Election-day cliché does not include an expression of happy greeting. It’s usually a reminder to “exercise your right” “vote wisely” or broadcast to “let the fire of democracy burning” because “together, we build our future”.
I love elections especially national/general elections. This is because it is the day when there is a total shift of power. All of a sudden, ordinary people at this important day become more powerful than those who hold an electoral position. The power is in their hands/votes. Also, during election day all people’s individual power are in equal standing. The 1 vote power of a poor bloke is as equal as that of the 1 vote power of a rich dude.
With this plain thought of having the power (even only for a day), people must feel at least “happy”. So let me greet everybody a Happy Election Day!
