Registering to Vote

Is it important to vote?

The right to vote is one of the many milestones we've accomplished as Americans in our fight to establish true democracy and secure personal freedoms. 

Unfortunately, about one-third of us don't. It's not that everyone abstains, but much of time, it has much to do with malpractice and disenfranchisement in some communities.

Did you know?

  • According to an October study by the Government Accountability Office, nearly two-thirds of the 137 polling places inspected in 2016 had at least one impediment to people with disabilities. 

  • 71% of eligible 65+ year-olds and 67% of 45–64 year-olds voted in 2016. Less than half of 18–29 year-olds did, according to census data.

  • Voter turnout in the 2016-2020 primary election season saw a 20% decrease in voters aged 18-29 in Texas and 9% in North Carolina.

"A man without a vote is a man without protection."
