Even in} \\ {4} & \;\;\text{America, the right to vote was once denied to many people.} \\ {5} &\;\; \text{Unfortunately, many Americans have become complacent} \\ {6} & \;\;\text{when it comes to voting. Rather than seeing it as a privilege,} \\ {7} & \;\;\text{it is often viewed as a hassle or a burden.
