If you're wondering whether you should vote at all, the answer is unequivocally "yes, you should". You should also do a bunch more immediate and effective work.

But there are good reasons why fascists spend so much effort trying to get people not to vote:

Who the President is matters

Who the national representatives are matters

Who your local officials are matters
