Primary Day

Today is Primary Election Day . . . Why Vote?

Candidates come and candidates go. Elections are won and lost. It matters that you vote. It is your voice – and the only person who can silence your voice is you. So applaud, complain, march, protest, petition . . . these are your rights but, without your vote, they are meaningless actions, backed up by nothing.

Why vote? So you can decide. Why let other people decide what is best for you when you have a voice: the vote. It’s your right.

Why vote? Young people, women and underrepresented groups all fought hard for the right to vote. Even today, there are countries where people are still fighting for the right to vote. Vote in honor of those who can’t.

Why vote? It is the way we change things. That is the way we reform the system and exercise our responsibilities.

Why vote? Because every voice counts. Try and appreciate the power of voting by exercising it!

Bottom Line: You should vote because you can!

Your right to vote is your right to expression and opinion. Do not take your right for granted.

Today is Primary Day and the Special Election . . . Did You Vote?

You have a voice, use it by voting. Polls open until 8 PM
