HOW TO VOTE
Voting really does matter and many good people sacrificed in order for us to have this right. If you feel like your voice isn’t being heard, then make this upcoming May 4th election count. You deserve to hold local elected officials accountable to you because their decisions will affect you and your family in many different ways.
Local politicians, along with other city leaders and organizations, determine:
- How your tax dollars are being used.
- What laws and ordinances are going to affect you.
- How much money goes into local infrastructure.
- Public safety and policy.
- Housing ordinances and taxes.
- Funding for community improvement programs.
- Funding for public transit.
- How federal and state money is used to fund education, job growth, health care and much more.
Your vote counts and your interests deserve to be properly represented.
Thankfully, registering to vote is an easy process that can be done online.
