Exercise right to vote

— Make it work. Register and vote.

It’s your constitutional right. Your vote is your voice. When we vote, we are actually telling elected officials and lawmakers how we feel about education, public safety, Social Security, health care and other important issues.

Our children are depending on us to represent their voices too. Because our children can’t vote, we have to do it for them. That’s how we make our concerns about schools, safety, housing and other issues heard. When we vote, we are looking out for our kids and their futures.

Our men and women in the armed forces give their lives for our freedom and our right to live in a democratic nation. This includes our right to vote. If you don’t vote, you are only cheating yourself and the future of this country. Get out and vote.
