1. Voting is a way to speak your mind and let your voice be heard.
Your vote is your voice. When we vote, we are actually telling elected officials and lawmakers how we feel about education, public safety, social security, health care, and other important issues.
2. One voice, one vote really does count.
Remember: there is power in numbers, and when we vote and get our family members to vote, we can truly make a difference. If you don’t vote for what you believe in, others will – and you may not like the outcome.
3. Our children are depending on us to represent their voices.
Because our children can’t vote, we have to do it for them. That’s how we make our concerns about schools, safety, housing, and other issues heard. When we vote, we are looking out for our kids, and their futures.
4. There are some hoping you do not vote.
Lack of voter participation often goes in favor of the very candidate, party, and/or issue that most needs change. So a non vote may actually be a silent vote for the perceived "problem".
Your voice matters everyday, but today even more so. See you at the polling station!
