5 reasons you should vote

1. Elections Have Consequences
You have the power to decide on the quality of life you want for yourself and future generations. Voting is your chance to stand up for the issues you care about like public transportation, police & citizen engagement or funding local schools. This is your life: take the time to help decide what’s best.
2. not voting is giving up your voice
Elections are decided by people who vote. Learn about the candidates & issues.  If you don’t vote, someone else will make decisions for you.
3. it's your money
You pay taxes, but do you know how that money is being used? Most people don’t. Voting is your chance to choose how your tax dollars are spent – such as funding for health care, social services, parks and recreation and more.
4. voting is an opportunity for change
Do you want to make a positive impact? Voting gives you that chance! Support the candidates and issues  that can help your community, state, and even the nation for the greater good. Make your voice heard in these elections.
5. the community depends on you
 Our communities are made up of friends, loved ones, neighbors, and children. Some may not know how important voting is, while others don’t have the privilege. Make the decision to vote for yourself and those around you.
