To say we’ve been busy this past year would be an understatement. The League’s mission – Making Democracy Work ® – means that we advocate for a democracy in which everyone has their say and every vote is counted.
If you voted this year or helped others in your community cast their votes, thank you! While a few races remain up in the air and final tallies are being counted, many new federal, state and local leaders are preparing for their positions and taking into account your vote and the issues you and millions of Americans weighed in on. Now, we must hold our elected officials accountable by continuing to be in regular contact with them on the issues we care about.
This is it, the day we’ve been waiting for – Election Day! We hope you’ll join us by voting today to weigh in on the issues important to you. While you’re at it, please ask your friends and family to cast their ballots too.
Election Day – Tuesday, November 4 – is just days away. Millions of voters will head to the polls to stand up for what matters most in their communities and their lives. I hope you’re ready to exercise your right to vote and weigh in on the elections in your community.
The leaders you elect make decisions that affect you – your job, health care, energy costs, security and more. League resources, such as www.VOTE411.org and state and local voters’ guides and debates, help you to get registered, get to know the candidates and issues, learn about the rules in your state and get out and vote.
