Millions of voters are heading to the polls this year to stand up for what matters most in our communities and our lives. We hope you’re planning to join with your neighbors to participate if there are elections in your area and hope you’ll encourage your loved ones to do the same. These elections are about our jobs, our health, our communities and our future. We all need to weigh in.
Ask your friends and family: What’s your plan for Election Day? Will you vote before or after work? Will you go to the polls with a neighbor or friend? Will you take your children to share the experience? Now’s the time to make your plan.
Voting brings us together as Americans. It is the one time when we are all equal. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, young or old; Election Day is your opportunity to support your community and have a say in our future. At a time when so much is at stake for our country and our future, voting allows us to take control. Every vote counts and together, our votes will make a difference.
Join with your neighbors in strengthening your community by voting in this election, and thank you for Making Democracy Work®.
