Voting is the power of the people

Are you a U.S. citizen? Are you registered to vote? Do you vote? What will it take to get you to vote — or for you to remind your friends and family to vote? There must be an issue or person you know enough about to share your opinion and vote.

Do not give the power to the few people who vote. If everyone voted, voices would be heard and politicians would know they could be voted out for not listening to the people. Special-interest groups would not have power unless the majority of Americans agreed.

National decisions are made at precinct levels where differences of 50 people can change a result.

Register and vote.
