You must ground your light switch. It is a safety precaution to keep the switch plate or cover from being electrified.

For most application, a common light switch does not require a ground wire. The primary purpose of a light switch is create a break in the hot wire, which opens and closes the circuit, so no ground is needed. If you have a special circumstance where a ground is required, you will need to run additional wiring.
