Your vote is your voice—use it.
Voting, especially in state and local elections, is a powerful tool for affecting change. Decisions made by your aldermen, school board representatives, and state legislators will greatly impact you and your community—for better or for worse.
Here are a few resources to help you get prepared for the polls.
Why should I vote?
Voting is the cornerstone of democracy. It is the fundamental right upon which all of our civil liberties rest. A strong and healthy democracy must include the voices of all citizens.
However, voting can be complicated, time consuming, and stressful. Mississippi has a long history of voter supression and disenfranchisement; this year, it's more important than ever to vote your values and make sure that your voice is heard.
Mississippians deserve leaders who are dedicated to making our state a better place for all—your vote makes a difference.
