17 Oct Action Alert: Are you prepared for Election Day?
“Voting honors our history. Freedom fighters, women, young people, and all underrepresented groups—all fought hard for the right to vote. So together, let us fight through, and break through all barriers that would suppress our right to vote.” Folade Onuwachi, 9to5 Atlanta (pictured center with Congressman John Lewis)
Will you be voting on November 5? Even in “off year ” elections when there are fewer high profile candidates or races, there are important positions, including city council, county commission and school board on the ballot. Depending on where you live, there may also be important issue questions on the ballot that will impact your community.
A vote is a powerful tool. It’s how we use our voice to shape the future, and it’s how we hold our public officials accountable.
