The fundamental power of democracy lies in the right to vote, and if you protect that right, you create possibilities for everything else.


Election Central

One of the most critical ways we have to access our government and hold the system accountable is through our right to vote. By educating ourselves on the issues, engaging with the process as it stands, and empowering one another to advocate for the change our communities need, we can establish the greatest quality of life for ourselves today and for our future generations. Check here for information on upcoming elections (What issues are on the ballot? Who is running for what? What do all these propositions mean for me?) and make a commitment to exercise your right to vote at every opportunity.
