Your Vote Matters

Many issues are on the ballot in every election. What can you do to make sure your candidates, values, and priorities get elected each year?

  1. VOTE in every Federal, State, and Local Election, up and down the entire ballot
  2. VOLUNTEER for the candidates who share your values and priorities
  3. DONATE to the candidates who share your values and priorities

Your vote is your way of making a difference in your community. Your vote contributes to our community, state, and national well-being.

Not voting because our current leadership isn’t doing enough or doing it fast enough is the wrong way to fix our government. And not voting because we haven’t gotten everything we were promised or everything you want threatens so much more than just our lives and issues we care about. Your vote matters what happens at all levels of government in many more ways than we can really wrap our heads around.

And that common trope “both sides are the same” is far from the truth. These U.S. House and Senate votes are just from the past two years… the parties are not the same. Who you vote for matters, and what they stand for matters.
