Dear [Recipients Name],

We are all aware that voting can be a hassle for some people who make a living out of making every minute count. However, you should know that the few minutes you spare for voting can and will make a difference. Just last elections, it has been observed that the gap between the winning party and the runner ups is only a margin of very few people. Take the time to vote. Make a difference!

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
