Why should I vote?


Voting is your chance to choose how your tax dollars are spent – such as funding for health care and social services.


Support the candidates and ballot measures that can help your community, state, and even the nation for the greater good. Make your voice heard in these elections.


Absentee voting (aka “mail-in voting” and “by-mail voting”) is conducted by mail-in ballot before the day of Election Day. All states will mail a ballot to voters if certain conditions are met.
