November 8 Is Almost Here!

Millions of voters will head to the polls on November 8 to stand up for what matters most in their communities and their lives. The League hopes all eligible voters will exercise their right to vote and weigh in on the elections in their community.

The decisions our leaders make in office will influence public policy for years to come, and each vote helps decide who represents us!

These elections are about our jobs, our health, our communities, our security and our future. Take control and commit to vote in these elections.

Voting brings us together as Americans – it is the one time when we are all equal. Voting is your opportunity to support your community and have a say in America’s future. Every vote counts and our votes make a difference.

I am going to vote and I know my vote will count; will you?
