Nowadays, anything can happen, especially when companies promote voting with insistent ads and alerts. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? It’s hard to say since we genuinely don’t know what these big companies’ true motives and intentions are. Host David Grasso sat down with political strategist Ajay Bruno and Bold TV contributor Raven Olson to discuss if it’s appropriate for these companies to tell you what to do.
Do companies promote voting because of an agenda?
Most of these companies have a plan. They simply don’t seem to care whether you do your civic duty or not when they put these ads out into the world. At the end of the day, they know how to manipulate people by tracking their data in real-time. So, for companies to add in even more manipulation into this year’s election is inappropriate, especially when there has been an abundance of this already. On the other hand, most people think these companies are doing a fantastic job motivating the younger generation to register to vote and educating them on how to cast their ballot.
How to vote: Who is really behind it?
It all depends on how pure these company’s intentions are. These ads telling people to go out and vote could be the difference. But it’s also our duty as the consumer to know what is truly going on in the world and to create a proper voting plan that fits into our beliefs. It’s only fair to create your own opinion without these outside-source voices tempting you. Yes, these companies are doing something great by asking or even telling us to go out and vote. It just depends on how the message is perceived to the consumer.
