Voting

YOUR VOICE IS YOUR VOTE

It’s Your Life – VOTE!

Elected government officials make decisions every day that change your life. They make laws that define your rights, pass budgets that fund your services, and decide how federal, state and local governments treat citizens like your. Get out and vote like your life defends on it, because it does.
