why do we vote?
It may seem like a simple place to start, but before we start talking about how and why to be a housing voter, we need to talk about how and why to be a voter.
In short, we vote to decide how we want the future to look. Voting is your chance to weigh in on who represents us, what causes they prioritize, and how we respond to a constantly changing world as individuals and communities.
While widely covered national elections are important, it’s also important to be aware of the state and local races that happen more frequently. And, if you think that voting only happens in November when all the campaign commercials come on TV, think again. Other important elections happen at different times in the year, such as primary and special elections, partisan races, for school board, sheriff, and judicial candidates.
