Starting in elementary school, I learned what our Founding Fathers fought for during the Revolutionary War, and throughout my young life, I was lucky to grow up with parents and teachers who taught me how important it is to participate in our democratic system.
But as I get older, I continue to meet people who simply didn’t get those lessons or who have become jaded by the day-to-day political grandstanding and animosity of politics.
The simple truth is that voting is our most powerful tool for creating change and holding elected officials accountable. No matter how frustrating it may be to watch today’s political theatrics, registering to vote and then actually esercising your democratic right gives us the leverage we need to compel our leaders to act for our common good and the good of the human services sector.
Next Tuesday, Sept. 25 is National Voter Registration Day. Will you help me make a difference?
If you’re not registered to vote (or if you moved and need to update your registration), please register now to have a say in our future. Fill out the form, print it, sign it, and mail it in today.
We’ve already shown we can make a powerful difference when we take to Beacon Hill. Now let’s show what we can do when we get registered and get out the vote!
