Wondering why your vote matters? Consider this: local, state and federal governments employ over 10 million people, and are charged with making decisions about your neighborhood’s roads, your community’s schools, your family’s financial security, and your country’s safety. Indeed, it regularly makes decisions about your fundamental rights to equality, liberty, justice, and democracy itself.

The decisions that are made in city halls, state legislatures, the United States Congress, and every other level of government really do affect the lives of everyday people. Not voting on Election Day is just not an option!

Below are some upcoming opportunities to create the kind of future you want for you, your family and your community. Don’t miss it! Get out and vote like your rights depend on it.
