Voting is the tool citizens use to select leaders and to hold them accountable. When that tool is not used, when only a few citizens elect leaders and a large number of Americans do not participate in elections, the future of our democracy is threatened. The more we express our values and concerns through voting, the better our elected leaders will be able to represent us.  Therefore we urge each eligible person to register to vote, encourage a friend to register to vote, and above all, on election day get out and vote!
