It is almost that time again!
National Voter’s Registration Day is September 25, 2018.
The DE Foundation are now partnering with the official National Voter’s Registration Day organization this year to provide assistance in getting everyone registered to vote who may still need to do so before election day coming up.
There are four different reasons you should vote every election period no matter what your race, gender or occupation currently is:
- For this nonprofit. Our nonprofit (The DE Foundation) depends on support from the city or state to maintain our funding and services. Elected officials respond to neighborhoods and communities where more people are registered to vote and vote.
- For your community. Neighborhoods and communities that vote get more attention from candidates and office holders. They are less likely to visit and listen to communities that don’t participate in elections.
- For our kids and youth. People under 18 can’t vote. Our children or youth depend on us to represent their voices too! When we vote, we are looking out for our kids, and their futures. Vote for their future as well as yours.
- For neighbors not yet citizens. Many in this community are not citizens. They can’t vote. They need you/us to vote for them.
Don’t let others decide for you.
If you don’t vote, you’re letting others decide who wins and what issues matter. Today’s non-voters actually favor government and social services (like access to health care, spending on education, income inequality or public safety) at a much higher rate than people who vote regularly.
