Take the fight to the ballot box.
If 2020 has given us ONE power move, it’s that it is a US electoral year. We’ve got the chance to be heard, and we’re gonna make the damn most of it. By voting.
Local elections are HERE. Typically, just 1 in 5 voters participate in off-year local elections — meaning your vote at the local level can have an even bigger impact. On just one election day in Ohio, 7 local issues were decided by just 1 vote.
Why is this election important?
Your Local government is the closest to you. Their decisions directly affect things like your immediate safety. You probably want a say in that 👀
Here's what your local government controls:
Local school quality
Deciding sanctuary jurisdiction status
Policing and public safety (and holding police accountable)
Rent costs and affordable housing
Alcohol and marijuana ordinances
City colleges and job training program
Have your say.
