Voting Makes Change Happen

The most important thing that you can do to put the USA back on the right track: VOTE.

Please: don't assume that enough other people will vote to make a difference; we saw that happen in 2016 when people thought Clinton would win so they sat the election out. Whether our current slate of candidates is your first choice or not, they are ALL going to work hard to bring back the principals and ideals that we cherish about our country. Trump and the Republicans have a very different agenda, which we have seen play out over the past four years.  We need YOUR vote.

And we need your voice on social media: encourage your friends to vote; talk to people; volunteer with the Democrats.  We need to take our country back, and the best and easiest tool in our toolbox is casting a ballot for hope, for change, for the Democratic ticket.

Please vote.

The General Election is Tuesday November 3rd.  
Our candidates need your support!

Planning to go to the polls on Election Day?

Here's where you will vote in person:

Montgomery County's Paper Voting System:

At the polling location, voters receive a paper ballot, fill it out, and then scan it.  There are additional rules about who hands you the ballot, who tears off a tab on the ballot, etc.  So it will be important to pay attention to the instructions.  The great news is that there is now a paper audit trail!
