Elections have consequences: Your vote allows you to make decisions about your life and the life of future generations. You can choose to vote for the issues you care about, such as public transportation, raising minimum wage, or funding public schools.
Not voting is giving up your voice: Elections are decided by the people who go out and vote. Historically, people fought for your right to vote. Your power is in your vote. You’re not only voting for yourself, but for your community and those who can’t vote.
