To vote or not to vote

Should a person take off from his learning to go and vote?
Rovin the son of Rav Adah says in the name of R’ Yitzchok  in Berochos 6B that if a person usually comes to shul and one day he’s absent, Hashem asks after him. If he went to do a mitzva fine, otherwise he’s in trouble, because he should’ve trusted Hashem to take care of his needs while he’s learning.
