Elections

Voting is one of the most important rights and responsibilities that U.S. citizens have. Voting gives you a chance to choose leaders and representatives who will do things that are important to you.

How to make a difference in the election process:

  • Play a role in choosing our leaders and changing our laws by voting.
  • Learn about the candidates and issues before you vote in any election.
  • Know what’s going on in your country and community.
  • Contact public officials about issues that are important to you.
  • Respect your right to vote! Many people in the world don’t have the right to vote.
