Because they don’t know much about it, they often don’t have an opinion on these issues and therefore don’t participate in decision-making processes. This deprives them of having their voice heard and from having their needs met by politicians who work for them. If you want to influence how politics are carried out then it is important that you become politically aware so that you can take part in decision-making processes at all levels of government – local, provincial, and federal – as well as municipal councils, school boards and other organizations that make decisions that affect you.
