The presidential elections receive all the hype but policies that impact your daily lives are more likely to happen on the local level. Your school board or city council’s decisions touch you sooner and may more significantly affect you than policies set at the state or federal level, even though the local elections often go unnoticed.
Think about your work in organizations. Does the person on the front lines make more of a daily difference for you than the far-away CEO? Is the receptionist or administrative assistant the one who can often procure information or resources that you need? Proximity and immersion matter.
Today is your day to use your voice for municipal elections and the school board elections that will make a difference for your community. Exercise your hard-fought right and VOTE today.
