What are the implications of putting energy and value into the voting process from the perspective of revolutionary politics?

With long and short term goals in mind, what does it mean to vote today? Does focusing on voting politicise young people or create a distraction from gaining critical perspectives on the current system that could achieve more substantial change?

How can we weigh immediate need against long term change and how can we put this into action?
