WHY VOTE?

VOTING IS YOUR RIGHT.

Not only is it your right, voting is one of your most important obligations as United States citizens.  

YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE.

Voting is a way of communiating to elected officials how you feel about education, public safety, social security, health care, and other issues.  If you vote, they'll listen.

YOUR VOTE COUNTS.

You only get one vote, but that one vote means a lot.  There is power in numbers, and votes add up to truly make a difference.

IF YOU DON'T VOTE, SOMEONE ELSE WILL.

When you don't let your voice be heard, someone else will speak for you.  Elected officials listen to those who vote.  Why deny yourself that voice?  Additionally, you get the chance to vote for those who can't, including children.  By voting, you look out for the our future.

VOTING CREATES CHANGE.

By voting, the public selects elected officials.  Elected officials make life-altering decisions that affect our country, our communities, and our daily lives.  By voting, you tell officials what decisions to make.
