Reason #1 - Your voice deserves to be heard
Our democracy is sustained by participation in the electoral process, so every voice is equally important.
Reason #2 - It's an opportunity to make change
Different offices are up for election at different times, so it is important to take advantage of every opportunity to vote.
Reason #3 - Elections impact future generations
Policies can have long-lasting effects on our communities, for the better or worse. We must take care to elect the best representatives for our futures.
Reason #4 - Voting can determine funding for your community
Choosing a candidate who understands the needs of our community means so many more opportunities for our schools, libraries, small businesses, and more.
Reason #5 - You can be a voice to those who can’t vote
We all know at least one non-citizen or somebody who has been denied the right to vote because of voter suppression. Your vote can represent their voices.
Reason #6 - It's a simple way to voice your opinion
Many states offer absentee ballots or conduct their elections entirely by mail. Voting doesn’t have to be a complicated process.
Reason #7 - Local government affects you more than you think
Compared to federal and even state governments on occasion, local government has way more impact on your day-to-day life. It is so important that you cast a ballot for these elections too.
Reason #8 - Raise awareness on issues you are care about
We are living in an increasingly polarized society. Voting is an important way to take a stand on the issues that matter most.
Reason #9 - Electing officials that are more representative of our communities
We are breaking new records for representation and diversity every election cycle, which is an incredible achievement!
Reason #10 - Not voting means someone else makes decisions for you
If you don’t vote, you are losing an opportunity to have your voice heard. Remember, every vote counts, no matter where you are!
