Although it may seem obvious, one of the easiest but most important actions you can take to help your country is vote, and encourage your family and friends to do so as well! In order to preserve the integrity of our democracy and ensure the will of the people is carried out by our government, it is important to make your voice heard. This includes voting in local elections. This year, your vote in the 2018 congressional elections is more important than ever!
