Make sure to vote in the upcoming election on May 19th! The deadline to mail your ballot is Wednesday, May 13th. You don’t need a stamp. You can also drop off your ballot by May 19th 8pm at a local dropbox.
As the largest and most diverse generation, young people have a chance to make a real impact in our country, if they vote. On May 19th you can vote in the primary elections for president, the senate, the house of representatives, mayor, city council, and on important local decisions being made. The decisions made by local and state governments are often just as, if not more, important when it comes to how our community operates.
Here are some additional tools and helpful information to make sure you’re ready to vote:
