Your Vote Matters!


Voting is a fundamental right in the United States and every vote counts. Voting gives you the opportunity to choose a candidate who best represents your beliefs, values, and who will fulfill the office to the best of their abilities. If you want your candidate in office, you need to get to the ballot box and encourage those around you to do the same. Don't know who to choose? How to Judge a Candidate is a great source of information to find out what to consider when making a decision on who to vote for. 

It only takes one vote to sway a primary or election. Don't let others choose your government officials for you. Look up your state's primary or caucus and register to vote, if you haven't already.
