    position of power

    Voters are in position of power.
    Is there any other saying which is in simple language?
    Does it mean voters have the power to decide sth?
    Thanks.

    This means that voters can make politicians hear their voices. The people vote for those who serve in government. If the people don't like who is in office, then a majority of voters can force someone out of office. Unfortunately, in the US not enough people exercise their right to vote. In other words, not enough people use their power.

    Voters have power. - I don't think it can be said any simpler than this.

    Voters are in a position of power can also be paraphrased this way: The people employ the government. At election time, the people can choose to vote someone out of office or vote the current political party out of an executive office in towns, cities, states, provinces. Of course, this happens at a national level as well.

    When an elected official is voted out of office, the people have effectively said "You're fired".

    Come to think of it, here's a simpler way to say "the people are in a position of power": The people are the boss - or the bosses.
