Your Voice Your Vote
Every voice matters. Every vote matters. We want to remind everyone that each voice and vote has the ability to influence elections and shape the future of your communities, states, and nation.
Did you know that Teddy Roosevelt was elected Governor of New York State in 1898, just two years before elected as President? He won that election by just 17,000 votes, a 1% margin of total votes. Imagine how the world would be different if those people didn’t vote, changing the direction of New York and the nation in later years.
Everyone has an opinion about what our future should look like, and to make that vision a reality, each and every one of us is gifted with the opportunity to shape the outcome; it’s our responsibility to use that voice, and to create the change in our world.
