Why Vote?

The importance of Voting:
The word “democracy” is Greek for “Government by the people.” The act of voting is at the heart of democracy. It is making a choice on the kind of government that you have.

Voting connects us to one another as citizens. By expressing our point of view, we help our democracy work.
