How do you impact the future? How can you shape the direction of your community? How do you guide decisions? All three questions can be answered with one word: VOTE.

Voting is one of the most important rights maintained as American citizens. It is an opportunity that past and present generations have fought to preserve. Exercising that privilege is a guaranteed way to ensure your voice is heard in governmental matters. But you have to be a registered voter to participate in the process.
