Need a few reasons why voting is important? Here are a few:

For your community

Neighborhoods and communities that vote get more attention from candidates and office holders. They are less likely to visit and listen to communities that don’t participate in elections.

For kids and youth

People under 18 can’t vote. Vote for their future as well as yours.

Don't Let Others Decide for you

If you don’t vote, you’re letting others decide who wins and what issues matter.

Honor our history and the right to vote!

Voting is one of our most important rights as citizens.
