"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
- Martin Luther King Jr.
The freedom to vote is one of America’s most important political rights and it is also the most hard-won right. Elections are decided by the people who go out and vote. If you don’t vote, someone else will make the decision for you. Your power is in your vote.
Participating in state, local and federal elections is one way for people to support policies that serve their communities’ needs and ensure they have a say in the decisions that benefit society.
Voting is your chance to stand up for the issues you care about. Together, we can bring change!
Common Cause works to ensure that every vote counts, that every eligible voter has an equal say, that our elections represent the will of the people, and that our government is of, by, and for the people.
